Modern Day Voyageurs!
Students from Lakehead University's Outdoor Recreation program completed their course this past week or so by retracing the former trade routes of the voyageurs. They were in Rainy River Friday evening and then stayed at Oak Grove Camp on the weekend, the former sight of the Hungry Hall. That was the last big facility before the fur traders would head out on the big lake. The modern voyageurs are seen here leaving Oak Grove Monday heading for Lake of the Woods.
