Find out More!
The human experience is not well represented by facts and figures. If we wanted to find out plain knowledge about the North, we would watch a film or read about it in a book. What we are seeking on our trip is the feeling of the river and of the land through which it flows, to find in the most minute measurement, a suggestion of the infinite, to encompass the universal within the particular.James Raffan writing in Summer North of Sixty – by paddle and portage across the Barren Lands.
