    Black Sturgeon Lake Trip 1

    Last weekend was our first trip to Black Sturgeon Lake this year. We have at least two more planned this year.

    My new tarp and first DIY project.


    My 5 year old daughter taking a turn at paddling.


    My wife finishing set up of the Hennessy City.


    Another view of the hammocks


    My first time trying out a Canadian Candle. It worked quite well for our pasta!


    My 7 year old fast asleep Canada Day morning.


    My 9 year old copying him.


    My view for the hour long coffee my buddy and myself enjoyed on Canada Day while everyone else snoozed.


    My daughter emerging from her Hennessy Scout.


    A relaxing afternoon.


    Bonus shot of my retriever diving for boulders. She brought about 8 of them up to shore. She isn't quite right in the head, but she's incredibly cute.


    Hope you enjoy!

    An added bonus, by buddy the ground dweller tried out the hammock, and is considering. Want's to try out a Hennessy Safari Deluxe. He found the Explorer a little too restrictive at the shoulders. He is considerably broader than I am.

    Fun report, thanks for sharing. About the only thing I miss here in Colorado is the nice set of larger lakes and resulting larger set of canoeing trips available elsewhere.

    That's one of the key benefits of living in the best canoe area on the planet.
    This campsite is the starting point of a trip we want to take down the Black Sturgeon River to Lake Superior. We were hoping to do it this year. Keeping our fingers crossed.

    Re: Black Sturgeon Lake Trip 1

    Looks like your family had great time, thanks for sharing your trip pics ...particularly like the peek-a-boo upside down little miss, diving dog & your own diy handiwork.
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    Thanks ofuros! We had a great time. One of the most relaxing trips I've had. The long weekend ended about 6 days too soon.
    I still have no idea where my daughter got the idea for sticking her head out, but she countinued to be "reborn" until she was out of the hammock.
