Our Saturday was spent exploring what this area of Canada does best: the wild and life on the edge. The day started with some off-road exploring by jeep and a hike to Cameron Falls with Kyle, Jen and Steve Schwarz, a geologist and Getty-selling photographer. The experience was vivid and informative; my brain was buzzing and firing on both halves. The rocky climbs were endless, and evidence of tectonic shifts and things bubbling up to the surface displayed blueprints left for geologists in this land so rich with minerals and precious metals.
In the afternoon, the lake beckoned and we hopped into a motorized canoe for a close-up tour of the colourful houseboats around Jolliffe Island. Parking the boat on an uninhabited island gave us another chance to explore lichen and moss-covered rock. Finds of the day included remnants of furry inhabitants and a claim stake from a prospector of the past.
