Thanks for the report. I am surprised you saw someone every day, especially in September.

The folks at the outpost on Sidevan were still there the morning we left. I actually talked to the pilot, he didn't know the portage to Goss was there, claimed he'd never seen it or knew about it but it's there! They were the only ones we saw on the route from Sirdevan to Turner Lake the next day.

Nice report Canoedog. Good to see that you are out canoeing now that you have more leisure time.

How is your dog Sasha(?)doing. Was she with you on this trip?

Hi Ed, unfortunately Sasha has passed on. Our other Golden -Lily is also getting on in age and she only comes along on the easier trips these days. How's Pepper doing? Still have to laugh about how Pepper and Sasha sorted things out at the COTS in 2005 - that's your end of the point, this is mine - with Pepper in charge!

Sorry to hear about Sasha.
Pepper is still going strong, now 12 years old. She managed 2, month long trips last year.One in the early spring in Chiniguchi area and the other in the Boreal in August.
She is not as agressive now with other dogs, but still hasn't figured out that size should matter when you are only a little runt of a JRT.

Seems those pictographs near the Whitewater Lake portage are quite elusive.
We once encountered a pair of canoeists paddling down the south end of Anima Nip searching for pictographs. We informed them they'd just passed a gallery on a cliff on the west shore and took them back to view the pictographs.
Turned out they were camped at the WWL portage and an outfitter had told them about several locations, including the WWL pictos, but they were having trouble finding any of them.
Next day we were heading out through Whitewater and paused to scan the area for rock art. There they were on the face immediately below the campsite area. These poor guys had been sleeping right on top of the pictographs they couldn't find!
