After the long day of paddling to get into Knife Lake the day before, we decided to relax around camp and do a little exploring around Knife’s Lower Arm. It was amazing to see the destruction left over from the forest fire that had ripped through the area a few years ago. The remnants were still readily available and made portions of the trip seem very gloomy. We were revived however with a little rest and some great views atop a high island in the middle of the lower arm.
With our camp already set up, we had the time to just explore around the lake. The shore seemed to jump up out of the water with very steep shorelines. The climb up with a little effort was rewarded with breathtaking views up and down the Lower Arm. The occasional canoe would pass by below us while we sprawled out in the soft moss under a canopy of trees. Knife Lake has a rugged beauty that makes every portage and paddle stroke worth the effort given.
