We quickly travelled across Carp Lake and headed to the next portage. While we were portaging around some rapids on the Knife River, we heard some people trying to run the rapids (we were going upstream). There was a scream, a thud, and then laughter as I think they didn't make it. We did see them heading across Carp Lake when we returned for the canoe, so I think they made it.
Next, we had another mini-portage to Seed Lake. While halfway across Seed Lake, a sudden gust of wind blew Shawn's hat off! We turned around in time to watch it sink underwater. Thankfully Tracy and Shawn maneuvered close enough for Brian to reach out and snag it from the middle seat. Our last portage was around a small waterfall on the Knife River. Of course we stopped to check it out. We even walked in the middle of it. Pretty cool... Then we heard some weird noises coming from the side of the portage trail. Upon further inspection, we found some wood ducks lurking in the weeds off to the west of the trail. They were kind enough to pose for pictures.
