John’s Canoe Trip On The Hayes River

Last August, John took a 12 day canoe trip over part of the Hayes river – which runs from Lake Winnipeg into Hudson’s Bay. From the 1670s to the 1800s, it was a major inland water way to bring goods in from the ocean and take furs out of the interior of Canada. They took two folding canoes so they could fit them into the plane for the flight out.

In the big waves, the folding canoes look like this:DSCN3452

Here’s the mouth of the Hayes near Seal Island, where the seals swim into the river from Hudson’s
