#4 Paddling Pic: Free Rides!



#4 Berens River, Manitoba. 2003


Sometimes portaging can be really tough (more on that coming in another post!) but sometimes it can be surprising, fun, and easy. We took one look at these rollers used by locals from Pikangikum First Nation to get their motor boats around a falls and we jumped in our canoe for a free ride!

Anybody else ever had a fun, unorthodox portage?


About Today's Paddling Pic:

These last few days and weeks I've found myself looking back on some wonderful memories and images of where canoeing has taken me, and it's made me smile. I feel so fortunate and grateful for these places, people and experiences, and it's kind of nice to reminisce. And in doing so I can't help but to also look forward to a time when we can all paddle safely again! So for the next while Reid and I are posting a picture a day (with a story) that will brighten our day and hopefully yours too. I invite you to share your stories in the comment section.
