    Most paddlers of canvas-covered canoes are familiar with the story of Grey Owl.

    Archie Belaney was a Britisher who came to Canada in the early 1900's and who took on the persona of a Native American, Grey Owl. He became known for his conservationist views toward the land, the trees and the beaver. The Spring 2016 issue of Family Camping and Canoeroots magazine has a nice article about Grey Owl by Joanie McGuffin. The article is about a trip that Joanie and Gary McGuffin led into the Temagami region with Ray Mears, British bushcraft expert.

    On the trip, a documentary, "The Path of Grey Owl", was filmed. The article lists a link at to watch the film. I was unable to access it from this link. However, a Google search for "the Path of Grey Owl" did provide hits on Vimeo, Youtube, and Canoeroots to the film.

    So, for those of us suffering from winter canoe withdrawal, watch this film as it provides some beautiful views of Temagami and a brief look at Grey Owl.
