Islands of the Taiga, East Arm, Great Slave Lake

We are just home from paddling the East Arm, Great Slave Lake! You will be able to read about the trip with Patrick Kane's article in the March, 2008 issue of Up Here Magazine. Jamie Whiteside played great music on the guitar by the fire most nights, Navarana Smith made great desserts and Don Carpenter and Hannelore Achenbach caught beautiful 8 pounder Lake Trout. This trip was Mary King's of Hay River first sea kayaking trip ever. She did great! We enjoyed watching the bald eagles and hearing the beautiful calls for the Common Loon and migrating geese and the visit of a 2 year old black bear.
