What I liked about the Echo Bay approach was combining the whack with a paddle. It meant having to pay close attention to the wind in the forecast.

Edit: check out this Caltopo link. The map will expire in 5 days. The red line is our exit route. Those bodies of water were open fens with great views upwards.
The best, the most successful adventurer, is the one having the most fun.
