Paddling the Manigotagan River

The duo’s loaded canoe is tied to a tree near Elbow Rapids.
Tracy Tjaden powers a canoe through sparkling water and outcrops of ancient rocks along the Manigotagan River in July.
The paddling duo walked their canoe along the edge of a set of fast-moving rapids to avoid getting dunked.
The Manigotagan features calm stretches that are easy to paddle as well as some rougher, trickier spots.

After hours of paddling, the hunting cabin was an unexpected treat.
The canoe sits along the edge of reeds near Charles’ hunting cabin, located roughly halfway through the journey.
The sun sits low in the sky as Tjaden and Bonneville paddle the Manigotagan.
