This was day #2 of a five day trip and the hardest day of the trip. All the sites on Pen Lake were reserved (Canada Day long weekend) so our site was further on to Welcome Lake. The fourth and final portage of the day was 2170 meters long with loads of mud and the rain started to pour down. We managed to fight off the bugs and slog through the mud to get to a nice campsite about 500 meters north along the shoreline of Welcome Lake. Nice sandy beach with a rock outcropping and stone throne.

The other portages were easy by comparison but the day was a long and tiring one. We wandered around a bit in the north west end of Aubrey Lake (could hear the dam/waterfalls but we missed a small opening between a peninsula and an island). Rock Lake was a nice paddle but Pen Lake had a pretty stiff headwind and it was tough going. The mouth of the Galipo River into Welcome Lake is just west of a large island and the 275 meter portage around the falls is located on the left shoreline. We paddled to the far end of the river mouth through a marsh to access the main flow of the river.

Tomorrow's trip is: Welcome Lake to Louisa
