For five days at the end of May I paddled a Canadian river (the Dog River) to Lake Superior with friends Alan, Dave and Dan. We carried our camping gear and so rode a little lower than normal for whitewater, and we had to portage around the odd waterfall, but it was a great trip. I haven't blogged about it because there's too much to say and I can't get started, but this picture from Alan says it pretty well. I'm the one in the purple boat. I was in dog heaven.
