Ahhh, didn't know you were still at Western. Actually what I meant was.. can you still borrow your choice of canoes for say.. a week long trip?

I've never seen anything like that Kevlar dart, I assume it's under 60lbs dry? Meaning, this craft is most definitely portagable?

LOL. Not really but I wish. When I drifted past the eagle, I was actually quite close. Not so close that it seemed to be bothered by my presence, but close none-the-less. There was also a bit of cropping on that shot.

It's 55 lbs dry and has a removable portage yoke -- attaches to the deck just fore of the sliding seat. Let me know if you want to take one for a paddle some time and I'll arrange to bring one home for a weekend.

More info about it can be found here:

Here are a couple shots I snapped this morning. It was overcast and snowing occasionally but still cool to see about 30 different baldies either resting in the trees or soaring over the lake.






And Dan, that first picture (taken on the Thompson River) in the series of 4 that you posted on 12/19/06 is very cool. Great full body shot and an intense look in his eyes. Nice capture!
