Always try to...I took 4 thousand photos on my last trip. Gotta love digital cameras...just snap away and go thru them in the evening and delete what you want.

Hopefully the weather holds out down there and we get some good sunny days

Day 2 last year, first water crossing on the way to Hurah Pass. There was not much water in the creeks.



Onion Creek... the road got wetter as we made our way to Stinky Canyon


Some heavy Equipment had just finished rebuilding the road earlier in the day




There is a road somewhere in this photo

There was a lot of rain across Northern Ontario in the last 4 days! Big system went thru. Glad I don't have to go that way tomorrow!

We only got an inch or two. Looks like the main road is cut, there.

Its pretty wicked. Wash outs everywhere. The backroad riding is going to be scary. Hopefully we don't lose to many routes. Hwy 101 is open now. I'd think 17 will be a while. Closed in both directions.
Just checked out my camp. The air base its under water


My shore line is taking a shit kicking. Water went up close to 4 feet today.
Hoping it goes down quick and the sauna doesn't wash away.

Wow! That's going to be dangerous if the lakes freeze that high. The water will receed under the ice creating an unsafe ice condition. Hope things get back to normal quickly!

Finndian, are you able to get to your shop? Is that between your shop and Wawa? Any other water problems in town?

Suddenly, being fogged in for a few days doesn't look that bad.
