The traditional canoeing skills of tracking and lining were used on most St. John’s canoe trips. Some tracking was relatively simple, but there were trips where these skills were sorely tested. By the end of these trips this skill was fine tuned, to say the least. These photos were taken on the 2002 Intermediate trip on the Churchill River (courtesy of Sherwood Botsford).
