Starting from in front of the former Hudsonís Bay post in North West River, you cross Little Lake and then go through the passage to Grand Lake.  If the water is high, you will have to line your canoe along the edge of the left-hand side of the passage against the current flowing out of Grand Lake.  Next, you have to choose whether to travel down the left-hand side or right-hand side of Grand Lake.  Huge waves can come up on Grand Lake and it is easy to become wave-bound.  There is often a prevailing wind blowing from the southwest.  In these conditions, the left-hand side can be calm, while there will be large waves breaking on the right-hand side.  This can suddenly change, however, if a storm system comes in from the northeast, resulting in massive waves breaking on the left-hand side of the lake.  (Go to Page 9)
