Winnipeg to Hecla Island

This morning we got up to rain and 54 degrees in Winnipeg. We headed north of town to drive a few hundred miles. Our first stop was Oak Hammock Marsh, a wildlife reservation. It was raining and the north wind was howling. I thought I was going to freeze while retrieving the cache.

When we realized there was not a petrol station anywhere north, we turned around and visited Selkirk, Manitoba. The girl at the gas station was really excited about our geocaching adventure. I had to tell her all about it. Her boyfriend has a gps and now they’re going geocaching. We found 2 caches while in town. The one on Red Wing trail was very nice.

We found this big cart at Selkirk. It must be about 25-30 feet tall.

About noon we stopped at Camp Morton to find a couple cache. The woods are full of cross-country ski trails. It was really pretty along the shore of Lake Winnipeg.

The leaves are just bearly budding out up here in Selkirk.

About 12:30 p.m. we were driving north on Hwy 8 about 70 miles from the motel and Mary spotted a moose just a few feet from the road. We stopped and took a few pictures. We didn’t seem to disturb the moose in the slightest. He just kept on eating.

About 1:15 p.m. we made our way out on Helca Island in the middle of Lake Winnipeg. The “Quarry Beach” cache was the most fun so far. The sun came out and the temperature is just right. A truly beautiful day. Mary walked through the woods with me to the cache site, but she made me climb down the cliff to retrieve the cache. After retrieving the cache we drove to Gull Harbor and then on to the very tip of the island. What a beautiful sight.
