Canoe Trip Day 4 (Aug. 26/10)

From Larry's itinerary for the day:

Thursday after breakfast we break camp, and start our last leg of the trip . Once we arrive at the takeout we'll have to go and get the van which we left on the Granite River Road. It's about 32km round trip and will take over an hour to complete.

Once everything is packed, we head for home [via a stop at the Stanley Tavern for healthy salads and orange juice].
I slept outside on my tarp that night.

Pix by others. Some are repeats.
