The Waters Call

Les Cheneaux Islands

The islands vary in size… All are heavily timbered, and many trails lead through forests of pine, cedar, and balsam. From a distance the islands appear to be great floating rafts of greenery, each striped at the water’s edge with a narrow line of white beach. The illusion of height in some of the islands is created almost entirely by the tall timber. (554)
