What started off with a bit of rain, turned out to be blue sky, and the timing couldn’t have been better, we were about to enter the open air of the wetlands.
Backpacking to White River
A wonderful boreal forest, at the southern edge of the boreal forest, the mix of plants here was unique.
Standing at White River Campsite
The White is easily reached, this was our first stop backpacking in Pukaskwa. The sound of the rushing Chigamiwinigum Falls, cascading down river is a fantastic feeling to be around. Our campground was steps from this river bend, just past the suspension bridge.
Along White River
Stopping to take in the view of White River.
Up Close With Chigamiwinigum
Part of the White River in Pukaskwa National Park. Chigamiwinigum falls goes out into s Lake Superior. Go off the trail, to feel the rumbling of this river up close.
Plank Run Bushwalking
A good plank run at the head of Whiteriver trai. The path was well maintanined, with some bushwalking. The ground was soaky, so we made sure to keep balance, as this part of the trail went on like this for about an hour on-and-off.
Off the trail, following the sound of a rumbling waterfall up stream, toke us to one of the final white river falls before going out to Lake Superior. It wasn’t the size or shape of it that was epic, it was the journey through the boulder field and that we had it all to ourselves.
