So you are up near the Lure of the Labrador Wild written by Dillon Wallace?  If you haven't read the book- I highly recommend it.  The trip sounds exciting- I have always wanted to get up into that area and points north.
And have you noticed any mosquitoes?

  that y’all have been neglected.   And it’s undoubtedly true.  So -  

  Greetings from Kejimkujik.  Oh, you don’t know where that is?  

  OK – it’s a Canadian National Park in Nova Scotia.  


  But let’s back up a little.  Jim had arthroscopic surgery on the

   right knee on June 24.  A week later the knee mechanic turned

   him loose saying “Go forth and walk – but don’t do anything 

  strenuous for 6 weeks”.  So we spent a few days with friends in 

  New York (Hi, Beau and Ninon!!), then went to the Catskills for 

  a little hiking.  But it wasn’t REALLY strenuous.  Or was it?  


  Stopped by RPH Cabin ( an AT shelter in NY) for a little trail work 

  and a chance to see old friends before heading into the Adirondacks 

  for a couple weeks.  


  We left the Adirondacks when we were told that our passport problem 

  had been resolved (that’s another story for another time).  Then it 

  was on to New Hampshire (where we ran into Red Wolf in Gorham) 

  and a quick trip through Maine to New Brunswick.  


  For the past week  or so we’ve been touring the back roads and 

  coastline of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.  A little hiking (too little), 

  a few petroglyphs (too few), some rain (too much) and way too much fog

  brought us to Kejimkujik where we’ve been for three days.  


  So far we’ve enjoyed our wandering through the north country.  There 

  are a lot of nice campgrounds, beautiful lakes, haunting loons, green 

  mossy forests and interesting trails to explore.  We’ve been introduced 

  to Acadian and Mi’kmaq  culture, eaten some good seafood, and tried

   to remember our very rusty French.  It has been fun.  


  The next stop is probably Cape Breton – but then, we’re never entirely 

  sure we won’t get sidetracked by something new and interesting, so …

   we’ll see.   Eventually we intend to go as far as Newfoundland, then back 

  through New Brunswick perhaps as far as Quebec, then we’ll head back 

  down through New England in the Fall.  There’s never enough time to do 

  all we would like to do – but at least we’ll be able to hike a few trails, canoe 

  a few lakes, and see some more beautiful country. 


   Walk softly,


  Jim and Ginny
