Ben, Jerry, Aaron, and I have gotten in the swing of an annual outdoors trip each fall. Past trips have mostly been hiking around mountains of the Northwest. This year it was decided to break our borders and head up to the BC wilderness for a canoe trip.
I really don't plan anything, I'm more of a "I'll just show up" kind of guy, so I can't take credit for the thoughts that lead us to the Bowron Lakes circuit. The route is through a string of lakes including a few river passages, plenty of portages, and one "rapids" section that had everyone worried it may be the end. For us, it was 6 days of breathtaking views and the realization that moving a canoe through water is quite exhausting.
Eager to launch, quick to find the pain.
Smooth as glass.
Could this get any better?

We're almost done...and I can't believe it's our last night :(
