Crystal Creek

Last weekend we were in town, so decided to do a little exploratory canoe trip. We had done the first half of the trip before, but had turned around. This time we parked a second car at Hiawatha to do the whole thing.

Put it and Trout Lake, and paddled and portaged through a series of small lakes before entering Crystal Creek. Upon entering the creek, we were faced with many sights such as this (lost track after 11 or 12):

There was mud.

Bog Dog wasn’t fond of the beaver dams and slippery logs

But there were also some very nice sections like this.

We thought we could get all the way to the falls (and therefore close to the car), but that proved impossible, so we ended up portaging out about 3km on the ski trails. Got some confused looks from trail users…
