Caribou Racks Everywhere

Dylan found one of the first racks (first week into the trip), which was also the biggest. After that they just were everywhere: campsites, shoreline (especially on the McPhayden in Labrador). We just picked 'em up off the ground. In the end, I'd say we had about sixty or so, the count was vague. We had a hell of a time getting those things on the bus with our gear for the trip back to Temagami. We attached Dylan's, which was a full rack (most were shed halves), onto the front of the school bus. Yeah, right on the grill.
