Here are a few pictures from our trip to the Mistassibi NE in May 2008, high water.

Camped on the side of the road getting lost on our way to the put in. This was the wrong road.

Image

Found the right put in on Lac Froget.

Image

A few adjoining ponds after crossing Lac Froget

Image

One of two short 'make your own' portages

Image

The final (brutal) creek drag to the Mistassibi. When the going gets tough, start kicking the boat

Image

Upper river is narrow with fun rapids.

Image

Didn't go above 0 degrees until after 10 AM. The only excuse we needed for late departures.

Image

So Relax and let the snow pass.

Image

The only rapid we didn't run.

Image

Endless RII and RIII rapids, km on end

Image

Aftermath of my swim after a close encounter with a big hole. It was a long, difficult hike back up to the boat. Easy to loose a boat and or gear when the rapids run for km's and there's no pool at the bottom

Image

River widens midway through with nice hills. Picture taken during another snow flurry. Better than rain!

Image

Rapids keep getting better.

Image

Shore scouting the last RIII after being cautioned that it was a monster

Image

Steve lining up for the last hole on the final RIII.

Image

Sun, warmth, and a nice sunset for our last day on the river

Image

Taking out a few km upstream of the last bridge trying to knock off a few km of flat water paddling. Not a good idea. It was a brutal drag through the burn.

Image

Fantastic trip. I'll be back there!

Thanks for the pictures Doug (better late than never).

Definitely looks like a great river. To bad its 15 hours to the put-in.
