15 Lake Superior PP Revisited
Trip Start Apr 23, 2012
18Trip End Sep 30, 2012
Due to high winds (which create huge waves on Lake Superior), we delayed our kayak trip from Gargantua Harbour to Warp Bay one day. Spent four lovely days camped on a “private” beach in Warp Bay. A side-trip hike and picnic to see Devil's Chair was a great change to kayaking, especially when the waves were high. The waves for two days caused us to be beach bound but was good for reading and bathing
After heading north to Wawa for supplies, we returned to the Rabbit Blanket Lake Campground for a two night stay. Night-time truck noise was somewhat irritating but from here we planned our next outing.
Our four-day kayak trip to Lake Mijinemungshing was great; our campsite was on a large island and the wave heights much smaller than Lake Superior. We paddled through most of the arms in this deceivingly large lake.
The two weeks spent exploring were magnificent -- hopefully a great prelude to Pukaskwa
- Check website www.crh.noaa.gov and click on Lake Superior for wave heights.
- Even expert kayakers we met respect Lake Superior during high winds and waves.
- Pereguine Falcons are here in Warp Bay – a great sight to behold after their near extinction :)
