Boundary Lake July Fifth, 2011

On the 5th we attempted Boundary Lake.  The easiest way to reach it is to canoe up two lakes then walk to the third. The weather was back to it’s cold, grey gloom.

On the way back to Nuk Tessli, we got a few gleams of sun.  The North Ridge, where we had been the day before, is in the background.
