Hi Brian,

The view from the elephant was spectacular.
Two of the best memories of this trip are; travelling through the second blow-up on Haps map of the Sturgeon, and the beaver dam on Halleck. From our camp on the Sturgeon we awoke to the sounds of negotiations between a female and male moose.

We found the campsites and the portage trails amazingly clean. We would like to contribute financially to the thunder box program/portage maintenance program we have heard about from this site. Would you have details of how to do this?

Temagami, what a place!

Glad to hear you had a good trip. That is a special area of Temagami.

Did you go in through the landing on Matagamasi? Were there many cars?
Was anyone camped on Wolf, Chiniguchi or McConnell or did you see many people?

There are two organized groups doing thunderboxes:
1. Nastawgan Network in Temagami proper

2. Friends of Chiniguchi in Temagami west

Thanks Brian, i will follow these links and do my part.

As for cars at the Matagamasi Landing, when we took out, Sunday, there were 2 large pickups and five cars plus our ranger. When we put in (a Thursday)there were only about three cars but there was a school bus with college kid, about 8 boat out for the weekend on Wolf Lake. They must be getting some kind of credit for this event because it was funny to watch/listen to them at the portage. They just could understand why anyone would do this knd of thing for fun.

Other than the college kid, it was kind of busy up to Dewdney. We saw about 4 parties of 2 or 4 people. From Dewdney back to Dewdney we saw a total of 5 parties; a canoe on Chiniguchi from the Elephant, two men on the banks of the Sturgeon, a small motor boat at the Chiniguchi/McConnell bay connect (where we saw a bald eagle) and then 2 parties camped on the Wolf on the way out.
There was no one (except us)that camped on any of the lake we went through except Wolf as mentioned above.
