Trip Report

If you've read my Cockscomb Mountain trip report, you should not be surprised that it's been weeks since my last summit! I jest. Although my mountain mojo was a bit depleted in June / July, this isn't the real reason I haven't summitted a mountain in the last 7 weeks. There are two reasons for the break. The first was a three week holiday in July which saw me and my son do an epic 16 day canoe trip in Woodland Caribou Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, followed by a week camping with family in Nutimik Lake, Manitoba.

I was just up there again a few weeks back. Such a remarkable area. Was able to take my wife and daughter this time and they enjoyed it immensely. Thanks again for sharing all of your journeys.

Good photos and awesome notes.
