Thelon River, Northwest Territories & Nunavut (1993)

The big lakes on the Thelon can get pretty tedious, especially after spending six days on the larger Dubawnt Lake (81 miles long!). We entered the Thelon below Beverly Lake, but got to paddle the much larger Aberdeen Lake (61 miles). We only got windbound one day on Aberdeen--much of the rest was mirror smooth. PakCanoes are not known for their flatwater speed, so patience and perseverance was needed.
Great reporting Pitt. The allure of the North has always been irresistable.
Now it looks wide open, windy and foreboding. My time has passed.
