Done with the Rainy River and on to the Lake of the Woods. I spoke to Andrew of the Voyageur Crew today and found out things are going fine for the Hudson Bay Crew. They stopped in Baudette to pick up more supplies after waiting out this morning's storm. Luckily they were invited to spend the night in a family's yard last night and relaxed under the front porch, drank coffee and played cribbage this morning while the thunder rolled outside.
The other day the Voyageur Crew was paddling along the Rainy River and heard chickens sqwauking from a nearby farm. He was in the mood for some farm fresh eggs so they stopped in and stocked up on some eggs and fresh vegetables. They had a nice visit before shoving off for more canoeing.
They are hoping for a nice calm day to paddle across the big part of Lake of the Woods tomorrow. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
"Lake of the Woods is the sixth largest lake (at least partially) in the US, after the five great lakes. It is 70 miles long and 70 miles wide with 65,000 miles of shoreline. The lake is mostly in Ontario, about 25% in Minnesota and a small section is in Manitoba. There is a section of the US in the "Northwest Angle", that is seperated from the US by water and it is the northern most part of the contiguous US. Several hundred pairs nesting of Bald Eagles reside on the Lake of the woods 14,552 islands."
