Murray and I are planning a canoe expedition from Black Lake to Baker Lake via the Chipman and Dubawnt Rivers. We'll begin driving up around June 15 and begin paddling about the 20th. The trip should take 45 - 50 days. Total distance is about 1250 km. If you are interested in joining us contact Murray at 705 648 3310.

This canoe trip follows the route of the 1893 J. B. Tyrrell expedition and the infamous 1955 canoe trip led by Art Moffatt. We'll be signing in at Tyrrell's cairn on the shore of Carey Lake which is the subject of a book, by Brian Johnston, titled On Top of a Boulder.
