The Voyageur Hudson Bay Expedition Crew will be paddling on God's Lake until around the 27th. It's a big lake with lots of fish and since the Voyageur Crew is so far ahead of schedule they just might try their luck at fishing.
God's Lake is the 7th largest lake in Manitoba and is an interesting area with two closely related but independent communities sharing the name Gods Lake Narrows; One is the Gods Lake Narrows Indian Reserve and the other is the non-treaty community on nearby provincial Crown land.
According to a site on the web, "Gods Lake Narrows (GLN) is located near the 54th parallel in eastern Manitoba, approximately 500 km north of Winnipeg and 200 km east of Thompson. The community is divided into the Gods Lake Narrows First Nation, located on the mainland, and the Metis settlement located on the island. The First Nations Band is split into two separate areas with main area to the east of the island and the other to the west, connected to the island via a causeway bridge.
The population of the First Nation community is approximately 2,500 people. The community of God’s River is a First Nation community located to the north of GLN and has approximately 800 people."
Gods Lake is a lake in northeastern Manitoba in Canada. The lake covers an area of 1,151 square kilometres (444 sq mi), making it the 7th largest lake in the province. It lies north of Island Lake at an elevation of 178 metres (584 ft), approximately 280 kilometres (174 mi) east of Thompson, Manitoba. It has a perimeter of 678 kilometres (421 mi). The First Nations communities of Gods Lake, Gods Lake Narrows and Gods River are located on the shores of the lake. It drains north through Gods River into the Hayes River.
From the book Canoeing with the Cree, "I cannot imagine how a lake could be more thrillingly beautiful than God's Lake. No wonder that name - God's country, indeed. Such sights as this are reserved for those who will suffer to behold them. The clear, calm level of the lake stretched as far as our eyes could see and, like the precious stones in a setting of silver, islets reflected the afternoon sun in splotches of color. The air was blue, so blue, as though the sky had settled down to earth."
