The portage dropped us off at Proux Lake for the first night and I was immediatly captivated by the stillness and serenity of the lake.
We made our camp for the night on Proux.
And made sure to hang our food sack up high. It would really have messed up our plans for a bear to have raided our supplies.
This family of common mergansers swam along the edge of our camp that evening, providing some great views.
We started bright and early the next morning paddling through winding marshland.
Along the way, we found numerous birds including a family of black ducks and one of wood ducks. A beaver appeared near the canoe briefly which was great to see. The songs of hermit thrush, white-throated sparrow and common yellowthroat rang out in the morning air.
We spent our third night at our farthest point on the trip, at Radiant Lake.The next morning we headed down the Crow River.
