Amber, Iris and I headed out to a campsite in the Algonquin Highlands Water Trails for the weekend. I'd never been in there before so wasn't sure what to expect. We started from the Little Hawk Lake access point and enjoyed a relatively calm paddle across the lake to a 950m portage where we learned how the bad the bugs could get this weekend! Iris was the only one appropriately dressed for the portage, covering every possible inch of exposed skin. Amber and I learned by Monday!

Under normal conditions, this would be a lovely portage, relatively flat and well used. With the bugs it was a bit of a get through it as quickly as you can sufferfest! Once we made our three trips through Mosquito alley, we had a short paddle across Cat Lake to our lovely, large, three level campsite at the end of a point. We were there in time to set up before happy hour and had a lovely evening and fire.

Browner and I met at Puslinch for a lovely little ride followed by a parking lot picnic. There is SO MUCH POISON IVY in there! For some reason, I feel I've become less susceptible to it in the past couple of years after a long phase of being infected even by looking at it. But there was tons at Turkey Point a couple of weeks ago and I never got a single bump. Let's see if I'm eating my words in a couple of days!

Roberta (my new bike) and are rebuilding the branches of the Trust Tree after our crash a couple of weeks ago.
