DS Phys. Ed. Class left last Wednesday to camp and portage in the gorgeous Canadian Shield country of Northern Saskatchewan. They were gone for 5 days.
Churchill River was their first destination....

Wow! Great pics, Pam. What kind of school is your DS lucky enough to attend, that has such great Phys-ed classes!?! :-)
I took a little whale-watching tour at the mouth of the Churchill River, up at Hudson Bay. On the train on the way back to Winnipeg there was a troop of young women who had come down the whole river by canoe - they looked like they had had a blast.
I'm curious about the boiling water thing (or not, as the case may be) - : Giardia can live even in clear water - just wondering if the guides had reason to believe it wasn't a threat in that particular river ? I had always heard it was a possibility anywhere in the wilderness. But if not, that would be great - one less thing to worry about.
Thanks for the pics,
This is the only class at his high school that goes.......250 Grade 11 students applied and 24 students were accepted. The give it your all attitude, marks, great attendence is what the teachers based their choices on. A couple of other high schools in town have something similar but they only take a trip in Saskatchewan....DS's group also went to Kananaskis.
Fishing for pike.......
Smoke seems to follow you wherever you go around the fire. A friend of mine said a while back that if you say "white rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits", that's supposed to make the smoke go somewhere else. Rabbits and smoke...now that's a connection that's lost in the mists of time. "Lucky" rabbits, maybe.
