After about the 1/3 of the portage, we found a paddler's full gear: tarp, PFD, thermarest, clothing, 2 paddles, 60l barrel with no harness (nobody dared to open it). Quite scary to think what happened to this person.

0513LK_[287]_Pekans_-_Moisie_portage.jpg
Pekans - Moisie portage797 viewsIt took us a while to find start of Pekans/Moisie portage. Very buggy - blackflies. Portage trail wasn't easy to follow esp. at the start. At one point, side path splits off to the right (but then ends soon). Main trail goes straight up the rock and it's hard to see. We portaged in two and a half passes. It was a very hard portage: rocky, muddy at the places, with one gully to cross.

0668LK_[261.2]_French_people_at_the_waterfall.jpg
Campsite at the waterfall on Moisie River769 viewsAs we were approaching waterfall at km 262, we noticed smoke rising on the right side. There is a campsite at the end of the portage and there we found a group of 8 canoeists from France. They spoke very little English and we spoke very little French. Quiet deep canyon on Moisie They travelled in 4 funny looking SEPAL canoes (fiberglass). Guy called Jean has a form for it in Charlevoix, QC. Such canoe is capable of carrying 5 big barrels. They were taking 3 weeks paddling through Carheil (Fermont, QC start)
