My latest blog post, sort of a tribute to those who paddled our Canadian waterways before us.
More of effort to get others to look and remember.

Thanks Jeff I meandered off on some of the archeology links. They didn't teach anything prior to the Europeans arriving in my day which I don't think was the dark ages but it's a while I guess. Nice to think of what's lurking quietly around us.

Great read! You always hear of places like the French River and the Ottawa and their significance to history, mostly from an European explorer perspective, with a little mention, here and there, of the native peoples. Interesting to learn a bit more about those who paddled before us. Especially for a park that doesn't often get mentioned with history.
