|Head River, QEII Wildlands Provincial Park|
The paddle on the lake is shorter and as it was a bit windy, we didn't want to make that crossing in rough water again. We planned to paddle to the first campsite and eat, then get home in time to get the kids off the bus.

It was a nice little paddle. The wind was pretty strong at times, and you really had to be careful of rock shelves under water! Once, crossing the lake (a little north of the treed island) and twice on the river, there were shelves of rock about a foot or so below the surface. With the wind ruffling the water, it was hard to see them, and we could easily have damaged our paddles. With it being so windy, it was especially an issue on the lake where we were almost blindly digging deep with each stroke.
Our snack was just some apples, dehydrated red pepper hummus and crackers. Nothing fancy.
