A shallow river takes you to the portage spot to reach Kingsmere Lake.
The portage. There is a large cart that boats and canoes can be loaded on to and pushed the 800 metres to Kingsmere Lake.
Waskesiu Marina Adventure Centre took us across Kingsmere Lake by boat. It's about a 15-20 minute ride.
The beginning of the 3.2km hike to Grey Owl's cabin.
Most of the hiking path to Grey Owl's cabin is more "rugged" than this, but a few spots have been developed to make the trek easier.
There is some amazing scenery along the way. We were lucky to have a guide from Waskesiu Marina who told us everything there is to know about Grey Owl during our hike.
You find the cutest, and tastiest, wild strawberries along the trail.
I made it! This is Grey Owls cabin.
The interior of Grey Owl's cabin. That stack of logs and sticks on the right is the beaver dam of his two pet beavers, Rawhide and Jelly Roll. Yep, they lived right in his cabin with him!
More of Grey Owl's cabin, including a few of his actual possessions.
The cabin Grey Owl constructed for his wife Anahareo after she decided living in a cabin with beavers wasn't her cup of tea...I don't blame her.
A very beautiful spot.
In the spring of 1938, Grey Owl returned to Beaver Lodge, a tired and weakened man. He died of pneumonia on April 13, 1938.
