Just back from clearing portages. Some big trees were down and a couple of big puddles bypassed on the Laura Creek portage, from Flume Lake to Matagamasi. AND we cleared the trails follows the creek. This will be a little harder to travel, due to loading and unloading the canoe, but it is a very pretty route.

What do you mean by "harder to travel, due to loading and unloading"? Is the old portage flooded and these puddles require paddling over?

The Original portage is quite passable now. Muddy sections avoided. Recent tree fall cut. All good. A single carry vs the extra ins and outs of the new trail that follows the stream.

Having some trouble posting the map. Will try again.
