The Portage of Doom

Here we are in the middle of the longest portage of our trip. 180 rods! That's over a half mile. Add to that the portage went up a huge hill and down a couple of 'em. It was really interesting toward the end of the portage, because our legs were tired and we were trying to carry a canoe down a really steep trail! Also note the gathering storm clouds in the distance. We knew those were coming our way. So we couldn't really take our time. We didn't want to get caught out in the middle of a lake when the storm hit, that's for sure!
