Let us probe the silent places, let us seek what luck betide us;
Let us journey to a lonely land I know.
There's a whisper on the night-wind, there's a star agleam to guide us,
And the Wild is calling, calling . . . let us go.

Day Hike to Godlin River

Day hike to the Godlin River. Trail is rough and wet. A bit buggy in the brushy sections. Takes about 2 hours. Fish the Godlin River. Catch a few grayling. Saw a one-wheeled trolley device that only made it as far as the Godlin River. Steve tried using a piece of bloody caribou meat to entice the trout. Tried the Sam McGee fly that John designed. Drinking port in our cabin with a bug coil going, gentle rain is falling on the roof this is living!

On the hike to the Godlin river we stopped for a group photo with upper Godlin lake in the background. On this lake was a nesting pair of tundra swans with a baby cygnet.
