Extra info for Canoe Country and Snowshoe Country
We came to the channel of an ethereal river, vanishing among the reeds. There was no breath of sound. Great white boulders gleamed here and there in the clear waterway. The rushes massed around us. Along silent curves we slid, on and on, until at last a small rapids rushed down from the black sanctuary of the forest. Its foamy course broke the silence; we took a breath, and turned our canoe homeward. It was dusk now, but a faint clear light still held. As we drifted back through the high reeds, great horizontal ripples came slowly toward us through the crystal water.
The first is only half enchanted, but this is wholly so; and as for the third one, it is so bewitched you can't even talk there. I know; we've tried it. Our own Jake is decorated with big round green lily pads and small oval ones of rose and gold. The pine trees stand sedately around it, trailing their reflections in the rippled water, and a flock of little flapper ducks, too young to fly, had it for their own until we came. Down a very zigzag path — for I was still steering — we came to our chosen island, and its long shadows looked very welcome after the sun's bright glare and Lee's admonitory one.
And their flying seems to be done under water as well as in the air, for they use their wings as well as their feet in their long dives. They are all mixed up about locomotion. I turn giddy thinking of them, soaring in reverse, with fish about them. Lee says they have many calls. The common laughing call, hoo-hoohoo-hooy and the night call we have heard. Then there is a storm call, and what is known as the "silly song," as well as shorter notes. Coming back, we met the people who are camping on the point.
