Touring Temagami

Route

What follows is a chart of what we planned and what we did. I have also included waypoints and routes in tab delimited text format. We planned the route using the Temagami Planning Map, but used the Chrismar map almost exclusively once we were out there. The extra portage is from the rapid just south of Katherine Lake. We carried past it. With a more durable canoe, it might have been worth risking.
