Ya know, I'm not sure if writing up trip reports is helping to keep my cabin fever at bay or if it's making it worse.
Here is a new trip report from last August for a trip where we started out from Canoe Lake in Algonquin, camped on Joe Lake then day tripped up to Tom Thomson Lake and over to Burnt Island Lake.
Burnt Island Lake looked really pretty and I definitely think we will need to head back up that way again.

Water Levels In McIntosh Creek?|

How is the water level in McIntosh Creek? Seeing as how it looks like you would be heading upstream from White Trout to McIntosh Lake how much current is there?

there is a seven hundred meter portage uphill out of White Trout but it comes after several beaver dams. No flow to speak of in the paddleable portions.

Day 2 Video|

Here is the video for Day 2 of our trip into Canoe Lake and area last summer. It was a pretty quiet day other than lots of rain. I've heard a lot about Tom Thomson being obsessed with gray, including having painted his canoe gray. If Tom saw as many swirling gray clouds as we did, then I can understand being obsessed with them.

I got the video for Day 3 put together yesterday. Lots of birds on this day including a family of loons that were fishing together and a very patient Great Blue Heron. We also caught our only trout of the trip up on Burnt Island Lake.
