The weather was sunny and warm and Jonathan, Christine, and I hiked out from Herring Cove to Medvejie Lake. Upon reaching the lake, we saw Dan Evans preparing to take the canoe to the other end of the lake. He had apparently intended to try and hike across the island in one day, but the early morning weather dissuaded him, so he came up to check things out and try again tomrrow. Since he took the canoe, we all just stayed down at the end of the lake and relaxed for a while before heading back to the hatchery to catch a ride to Herring Cove.
