    My first dog at 8 weeks old going into the backcountry.

    Not in the canoe, but it's the only one I have right now with the lifejacket. Didn't keep it on him the whole time because he got too hot.

    Waiting on Dad to get any from in the boats but here is an amazing picture of the 2014 One Square Mile of Hope. Over 3000 boats out on 4th lake in the Adirondacks. We broke a world record and raised a hell of a lot of money for breast cancer.

    Looks like you just passed the boyscout camp and are about to be in the lake 'proper' once you get by that private point

    I think I was here when I snapped the photo:

    [​IMG]Here by Hansen.Dougie, on Flickr

    I don't know where the BSA camp is but I think it would be South of where I was. It was my first time there and had a great time. I'll be going back again for sure.

    Yup. That's where I was thinking

    BSA has a large area but what I call BSA is where they have a beach area and where they used to leave the motor boat

    Snake River canyon from one of the smaller bulrush lined backwaters.

    The other direction.

    DSCF1501.jpg

    A close-up of the canyon rim. Those little white streaks you can barely see are bird droppings. The holes and ledges of these cliffs are a major nesting area for raptors. These photos were taken in the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area.

    I think this is a bit of a stretch given that it's actually a boat and it has an outboard engine, but here comes anyway.


    I took these photos when leaving our cottage (see this thread: http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/showt...rehouse-and-a-smoke-sauna-from-1906-pic-heavy). It's on an island so water and boats are facts of life.

    I got to choose my boat first; took the middle one, because it's the coolest. The first one is nice, too, but its motor was being repaired and it's a bit stiff to move with oars alone.

    Dad took the fast boat on the back; he gave me some 20 minutes of head start...
    [​IMG]

    My stuff and a load of garbage going to the mainland.
    [​IMG]

    The Horse Rock. It used to be a much smaller island, but the waters have receded since the 1800s. Local legend says a flock of horses were grazing there once, when a lightning struck nearby, and the poor animals stampeded in fright right off the rock, most of them drowning in the process. Must have been awful. I dived there once as a kid, hoping to find horse bones - no such luck...

    [​IMG]

    Uh oh, there's something on my tail, approaching fast.

    [​IMG]

    And now he's equally small dot receding to distance. The pace of change here has been pretty rapid: no more than ten years ago, one couldn't see almost any signs of civilization here, except for the boat harbor. Now, there are these crazy mansions popping up everywhere. Shame.

    From our Bog River trip, this is a pic my wife took while I was gathering wood. Our campsite (#12) is on the other side of the river, near that yellow clump of beech to the left.

    Arizona is full of surprises. It isn't all desert, Grand Canyon, Phoenix, and big lakes on the Colorado River. The Mogollon Rim in east-central AZ, is a long stretch of remote high country, with forest covered mountains and picturesque little lakes. This country continues on into New Mexico for many more square miles. It's mostly public land with some Indian reservations and private ranches here and there.

    My favorite paddling discovery.

    Most of these are not actually taken from my canoe/kayak but are right on the river and is how I discovered this amazing spot!

    What I found is a large maple that had grown directly on the banks of the River Raisin in Michigan, due to a storm and or size it had partially fallen over, bringing the roots vertical. Miraculously the tree survived and the roots up in the sky kept growing and turned back down to the earth creating a cavern under the root structure. The first photo is from the river side. Thats my brother for scale and the leaves to the left are from the Maple that created this structure.

    DSCN0389.jpg

    Again my brother for scale and a view from the backside where you can see an opening, whats in there?

    DSCN0386.jpg

    Now a photo of me from the inside

    DSCN0369.jpg

    My brother standing in just about the same spot, unable to reach the ceiling.

    DSCN0375.jpg

    And from the doorway looking into the room

    DSCN0371.jpg

    And a view of the very far corner, note the rivulet flowing through and muddy ground absolutely covered in coon tracks

    DSCN0373.jpg

    And the extra cool thing IMO. An Eastern Phoebe nest!

    DSCN0374.jpg

    And now to stay true to the thread two photos that are actually from the vessel.

    DSCN0411.jpg

    DSCN0402.jpg

    Hope you found this as amazing as I did!
