This week, five women will set out with adventurer David Lee looking for some some lost history.
They’re on a canoe trip to rediscover an old route that’s not been used in decades. That means bushwhacking through overgrown portages — not unlike the early voyageurs would have done.
This quest began after Aurora’s David Lee found a 1914 canoe route map. One particular route sparked his interest — northwest of Sudbury, near the Mississagi River and Russian Lake.
