storm damage along the Wenda Lake Portage

Along the Trail to Wenda Lake   A week ago Friday, we walked the portage into Wenda Lake in Algonquin park. (A description of this walk from a previous year my be found in Wenda lake Hardwoods.) This year's walk was pleasant but uneventful. However, about 0.5 km from Wenda Lake, we passed through an area of massive destruction, presumably the product of this summer's storm of July 17. The canoe rangers have done an impressive job in reestablishing the portage.
