Chasing my Dreams – For this summer’s adventure, we are paddling the Mara and Burnside Rivers in Nunavut Territory from the headwaters at Nose Lake to Bathurst Inlet on the Arctic Ocean. This trip completes a series of trips I began in 2000 on the Coppermine and last summer on the Hood River. Sir John Franklin explored the area in 1821 and 1822 on his tragic first Royal Navy expedition down the Coppermine and back up the Hood River and over land and across the Burnside River. We are bringing plenty of food and gear for the 20 day trip. We should see caribou, wolves, muskox as well as hawks, falcons and eagles. Getting there is half the fun.
