Paddling the Perimeter of Wabakimi Provincial Park – Overview Map and Links To Detailed Posts

In the summer of 2013 my brother Max and I set off on one of our longer canoe trips. After our drive up to Armstrong Station from southern Ontario,  we had Mattice Lake Air fly us to Rockcliff Lake at the start of the Misehkow River system. The 350-kilometer journey began there. It ended 17 days later on the Pikitigushi River where the logging road from Armstrong Station crosses the river.  It remains my brother’s favourite canoe trip! (I am still leaning towards our Bloodvein trip the following summer!)
