Surface Water Temperatures

Last month Eric sent me an image with the temperature data we collected displayed along with its location along our path.  Interesting stuff!  It was nice to see the data corrolated with our subjective observations – such as Desolation Sound was very warm, and abruptly getting colder once we went through the rapids.  It’s also a nice visual for just how far we paddled.

    Great map of your trip! It’s surprising how warm the water got in some areas.
    Looking forward to more posts, Gerrie.
