Your view from under the tump strap carries out across a vast open expanse dotted here and there with small trees, open ponds and thousands of hummocks. Carrying a canoe across is similar to carrying across a boulder field that is constantly wind swept. However most boulder fields donít last

for the distances we had to cover! The hummock to hummock jumping, or climbing, or the up and down dodging between the hummocks is tough going.

Interspersed are swamps whose margins are flat and inviting but where you can sink in to the hips. If the sun comes out and the wind drops it gets oppressively hot and buggy.
