If you look closely on the rock, there is a Native rock painting (pictograph) of what appears to be a moose.  This site near our cabin on Metionga Lake indicates there where folks plying these waters many, many years before us.   I wonder what the fishing was like then. I suspect it was as fabulous then as it more.

past and present

Flindt Lake cabin in it’s pre 1996 days.

In years gone by, a cabin was just a roof over your head. One room, bunks along the wall, mice for room mates, stuffy, mosquitoes travelling through the wall at will, and a hot plate for cooking was the order of the day.

I’ve been asked several times to post about some of the history of Ignace Airways and Ignace Outposts.  Here is one of hopefully many trips down memory lane.

A view back in time

About 20 years ago this was one of our finest cabins. Today it is a shed. For those who may not recognize this cabin, it is on Seseganaga Lake. It is the old cabin 2. In its day, it was state of the art. It was one big room, 8 beds in the back half and kitchen eating area in more.
