Carol and Glenn are very excited to finally be off Lake Winnipeg! It was an extremely challenging several weeks but they are officially done!
Now, they are happily paddling upstream on the Winnipeg River. As they go further upstream towards Ontario, it is beginning to look more like the Canadian Shield. They are seeing Jack Pines, Spruce, Oak and a whole lot of rock! It is a welcomed change of scenery from the prairies! And a positive reminder they are close to their very own province!
Before reaching Kenora, Ontario, Carol and Glenn still need to go over 7 hydroelectric dams. Each one will be a challenge in itself. But they are always up for a good challenge!
Last week Carol and Glenn were on page 9 of Express Weekly News based out of Gimli, Manitoba. Check out the link below!
When Carol and Glenn arrived in Gimli, which is on the the south basin of Lake Winnipeg, they were greeted with a very warm welcome from locals on the beach! It was a very calm day as you can see in the picture below!
A box of dehydrated food was graciously received weeks earlier by Karen the Execution Director at Evergreen Basic Needs (EBN) in Gimli, Manitoba, sent from home by friends. This will sustain them until the end of their trip.
