July 19th, Day Thirteen - Operation Canada
We awoke to a cloudy sky, where we went though the normal practices of the morning.
After we were packed up, we decided to take a quick day trip to a new country.
A stake making the land to be on US soil.
Our campsite was in the United States, though very near the border of Canada.
In fact, Canada was about 200 yards away! We decided to take a mission to Canada.
We left our gear in our campsite and took our three canoes and landed on a Canadian
island. It was official, we have stepped foot in Canada!
After taking in the moment with photos and glory, we returned to the United States
(just across the lake) and picked up our gear to go to our last campsite of the
trip. It was a sad feeling traveling to the last campsite, but an excitement for
home was starting to develop in everyone's heart.
Traveling to Canada.
We had lunch and paddled the rest of the afternoon to a campsite by the Northern
Tier High Adventure Base. We set up camp and started to cook our last dinner.
This dinner was the biggest meal of them all, as we had some food left over from
the trek. If dinner was not enough, our desserts were quite filling; cheese cake
and muffins. No one went hungry that night.
Before we went to sleep,
a clash of thunder filled our ears as rain immediately began to pour. The wind picked
up and we dashed to the dining fly to take shelter while we had our last reflection
of the Voyage.
With the sound of the rain splattering on my tent, I fell into a deep sleep.
