Google Earth Rocks!

It being a cold, rainy day I spent much of it indoors. I took advantage of hi-speed internet to download and use Google Earth. Amazing! I was able to virtually paddle around Manitoulin Island again, picking out actual campsites, nearly even some of the trees I sat under, especially on the west end of the island near the quarry where one can obtain greater details. Totally incredible tool to have at one's fingertips both for reviewing old paddle trips as well as planning new ones.
The Lower North Shore looks like a wonderland of islands and interesting coastal features. You have to check out Google Earth before your next paddle!

If you like the Lower North Shore, keep going! It only gets better as you continue along the coast of Labrador, the passages get more intricate, the hills get higher!
