Georgian Bay - Etches Island

Our first stop on our expedition, after driving 7+ hours and loading up both kayaks. We didn't want to camp on Rattle island again, but we didn't have much sunlight to afford paddling too far. Etches is circled in red on the following map (click on map to see full-size).

We were able to unload relatively easy on the east side, there's a small bay protected by a relatively small rock island. From there we had reasonably good access to a good campsite. If room for a 2nd tent would have been required, we're not sure where we would have put it.

The island includes enough vegetation and elevation to make it worthwhile to climb and to look around at the view.
