An Explorer’s Club expedition before the club was even born! Ishpatina 2011 was Lure’s very first guided expedition. These group members certainly had to demonstrate the “explorer’s mentality” to follow a couple of untested twenty-somethings into the winter wilderness for eight days!
With deep snow, lots of slush, and a major mid-trip meltdown, we certainly faced our share of challenges en route to the top of Ontario!
Members (alphabetical): Dave Marrone, Kielyn Marrone, Collin Pollard, Roger Pollard, Jouko Rantala, Stephen Ritchie.
Our “Top of Ontario” tour has become a classic offering that is now on our schedule most years. Check out our Ishpatina Ridge page to check dates or register.
