Thanks to our spotters: Ron Miller (from the air), Penny St. Germain (Temagami Island), Jason Pigeau (Devil's Island), Bob Farr (Bear Island), Steve Battis (Southwest Arm) and Harold Keevil (Sharp Rock).

Caution to backcountry travelers: the park and northern edge of Temagami is usually a couple of days behind Lake Temagami.
