Travel by canoe is not a necessity, and will nevermore be the most efficient way to get from one region to another, or even from one lake to another anywhere. A canoe trip has become simply a rite of oneness with certain terrain, a diversion off the field, an art performed not because it is a necessity but because there is value in the art itself.   John McPhee

    Very neat, Sandy. Makes me remember my canoeing days in Montana, long ago. It was something I really enjoyed. John’s picture is good.

    I can’t help but think of the times (and really, not so long ago) when travel by canoe was the only way to go from one place to another. How grand to silently glide through rivers and lakes on the way to your destination with uncut ancient forests on the banks; and to board without having to take off your shoes!!

    Love this pic, very serene and I like how the canoe is hidden yet stands out the most in the picture due to the color.
