#1: Looking east towards the confluence from 2 km away

(visited by Mark McKenzie, Lori Ziemski, Ernest McKenzie and Betty McKenzie)

10-Aug-2004 -- We ran out of daylight and did not successfully make it to the confluence on this attempt. We turned back with close to two kilometres of what I then assumed was all thick forest and brush left to struggle through.

It was, however, an enjoyable experience. The adventure included a fairly short drive from Glenburnie to Hind’s Lake, an hour’s boat ride to a landing more than two kilometres from the point, and a short hike up the beach, around a bog, and into the woods.

Hinds Lake is an isolated and beautiful area surrounded by a rocky beach and low, forested hills. The surrounding trees were generally short, resembling wind blown tuckamore, perhaps stunted by the boggy conditions or rocky soil.

Be careful if you visit with your boat. The water seems quite deep but there are shallow regions with rocks near the surface.
