Wild Brook Trout
Another wet and windy morning (for a change), but with more
blue sky visible than yesterday morning. The plan for the
next couple of days is to head back down to the Korok and
take a pass through the mountains to the Nakvak Valley for
some fishing (and a welcome supplement to our diet of freeze-dried
meals, dried fruit and nuts and cereal).
After stopping at a previous camp site and picking up our
cache, we continue to the Korok, cross the frigid water and
set up camp on the south shore. Tomorrow, we'll make a quick
dash back to the landing strip and our first cache to replenish
supplies, then we return to this site.
After having eaten fresh, albeit sardine-sized, wild brook
trout fished out of the Korok on the second day of the expedition,
I go to bed looking forward to bigger fish, raw, cooked and
everything in between.
It snowed on Mont d'Iberville today.
