From the Web... Black River is located 138 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg and approximately 36 kilometres north of the community of Powerview/Pinefalls, Manitoba. The population of the First Nation is 980 and the primary language used is Ojibwe. The Community has a window plant, water treatment facility, truss plant, health centre, Head Start Program and a general store/gas bar. The Majority of homes are single detached and located within a one-mile radius of the government offices and schools. The community is accessible year round by a paved road, which intersects PTH 304 (6.4 km to the east).The Hudson Bay Crew rested for less than five hours before embarking on another long day of paddling. They began paddling around 5 in the morning and didn't stop until after 10 pm so they canoed for over 15 hours. They paddled over 41 miles on Lake Winnipeg and didn't quit until they reached the end of the big lake.
The Crew started on the South terminus of Lake Winnipeg on the 20th of June. I heard talk about wanting to travel from the south end to the north end in 10 days. It took them a little bit more than that but I am happy to say they are done paddling on Lake Winnipeg.
Even better than fireworks completing their time on Lake Winnipeg is a great way to celebrate Canada Day. Way to Go Guys!
