On Columbus Day we had great weather and really wanted to go on a nice day trip. We decided to head back to Hitchins to spend the day. This time we paddled directly to the old homestead at the portage spot between Hitchins Pond and Low's Lake/Bog River. We hiked up to the top of Low's Ridge which provided us with some gorgeous views! Claire was really impressed! She was a great hiker and did not ask to be picked up once. She practically ran up and down the 1.1 miles each way. She insisted on wearing her "backup" wonder woman crown to which paddlers on the way out from camping over the weekend commented incorrectly "what a beautiful princess" - she corrected them of course. We made some hot food for Claire to eat on the way out and headed out at sunset. We were a little nervous paddling in the dark, but the full moon came out from behind the clouds and we were able to see quite well to get back to the car. Beautiful day!
