Great shots.... I love the ones of the Moose. We just returned from a weekender at Potters Lake where we had a mother and calf moose swim across the lake. When they got to shore I took the camera out to photograph them from our campsite but they were too far away for a clear photo.

We went up Potters Creek to Potters Lake making a loop from Canoe Lake up Potters Creek and back to Canoe Lake. We camped for two nights on Potters Lake and then travelled through Pathfinder Lake to the pond, then Tom Thomson and onward to Little Doe for the final night.

Nice. I must say it looks slightly chilly in those photos. How was it?

The mornings were a little chilly with temps around 10°C (50°F). Daytime temps were between 25°C and 28°C (77°F and 82°F). In the mornings I would wear pants and a fleece. By about 10 am I would zip the legs off the pants and get down to a t-shirt and shorts. We went swimming around 2 pm on the Saturday and then again around 4 pm on the Sunday.
