Four days spent kayak-touring in Pukaskwa National Park, Ontario, Canada. Departed from Hattie Cove Visitor Center, and paddled onto the open waters of Lake Superior in fine weather. Camped at Oiseau Bay, Gravel River, and Fish Harbor. Encountered a couple of foggy days and one fast-approaching lightning storm which briefly drove us off the water.
On the return trip, we aimed to paddle up the White River to see the highly recommended Chigamiwinigum Falls Gorge, but heavy rains the previous week had swelled the river to nearly 300% its usual discharge flow. After a futile attempt, we instead landed deep inside Playter Harbour and hiked the trail 1.5 miles up to the suspension bridge over the gorge.
