"Artery Lake"!

Artery Lake is a "jewel" on the "Bloodvein River", straddling the Manitoba/Ontario border. Years ago when I ran an Air Service in Little Grand Rapids, my "radio man", William Moar, owned the "RTL" (Registered Trap Line) at Artery Lake, and had a traditional "low-ceiling" trapper's cabin there. William has since passed on, but his brother Fred, also a good friend, now owns the "RTL" and built a new cabin there, and visits the lake numerous times during the year.

Along with the abundance of "fur-bearing" animals and "moose", Artery Lake also has some of the best fishing I have witnessed in the area. Bob and Shaun Jackson, also good friends, who own Adventure Air and Jackson's Lodge and Outposts, also have an outpost camp at Artery Lake. I have done flying for them in the past, and they had a practical, functional cabin at the lake. Well, last year they built a new cabin, and I hadn't seen it yet. So, yesterday evening I took a couple to Artery Lake that were going to canoe the Bloodvein River, and I had a chance finally to see the new camp. "WOW"! I will let the pictures "speak for themselves"!

The "deck"! The logs in the deck structure all came from across the lake, from a "blowdown" that happened a couple of years back during a violent storm. They were straight, beautiful "girth", and dry! Posted by Picasa
