Exploring Lake Travers in Algonquin Park

In 2011 September, Bob and Diana spent three days exploring Lake Travers (Lake Traverse) on the Petawawa River in Algonquin Park. That exploration is illustrated here. Major points of interest include: the logging dam at Big Thompson Rapids on the Petawawa River; the Pembroke Lumber Company; and the De Geer moraines, which lie to the east of Lake Travers. This trip is described in more detail in Trip Log - Exploring Lake Travers and two other pages referenced therein.
