Useful information for canoeists and hikers

You go through pretty country during the remaining 4 days of hiking to the Hubbard Monument.  The land is relatively flat although there are small rises varying from a few metres to a 100 metres to get over, small valleys to cross, plus windfalls and deadfalls, all of which will make you very glad to put your pack down at day’s end.  Add snow and starvation to the picture, and you can begin to appreciate what Elson and Wallace went through a hundred years before.

Below is one of my campsites in the highlands.
