Yelllowknife a fine starting point for your Great Slave journeys(and beyond)

Yellowknife is the perfect spot to start a trip on the lake. Historically many famous Arctic Explorations used the Lake as a starting point. From Yellowknife if you paddle hard enough you can reach three oceans. This involves some long trips, but they have been done before with gear no where near as nice as the stuff we have now.
Come on up and play much worse ways to spend your vacation you can be sure of that. Cheers, Greg

My paddling season is over for this year and it was as always to short but very sweet. I had some surgery that requires I take things easy until early December and that finshed my season.

spent the summer working with a greenlandic stick and enjoy paddling with it very much, now to try and master some greenlandic rolls.

National Canoe Day, Number 26 was a great success with many Canadians showing their support for the canoe. Regardless of what you paddled yesterday, I am considering them all to be canoes for a day.

Open water around the edges and on the Yellowknife river and Cameron systems.

water levels are very low but slowly rising with the melt.

Fall paddling on the Great Slave is excellent but can get a bit windy at times. Great for sailing that. I was out the other da and had a great sail across YK bay and Back Bay to the river and a good into the wind paddle home. Cheers, Greg

Season is still going strong but there is the fall nip in the air at times, this sucks as it is early days August. Weather is warm and we can actually get a really nice October ocassionally.
