Took the ferry to Langdale, and then transfer to a smaller ferry to Gambier Island. Surprisingly, there were a lot of passengers
going there. We had to wait for the second run. It was a nice ride to the Gambier Island, home to only 100 residents.
Our first stop was the Gambier Island General Store. It had the rustic look, like we were back in the old days.
It's really a general store, from canned foods to served scrambled eggs breakfast. We didn't spend long here because
we knew what we want when we came out from camp later.
We followed the logging road, not scenic at all, to sa plit junction. Here, we adjusted our packs, and we were going
to shift to our first gear, going up steep slope.

Come on, let's go
Who puts that gate there?
Woodpecker at our camp
Very young trees, this Island is still being logged
Another view on the Lake
Man, it's very steep. It's actually a dried out creek bed with sharp rocks.
We finally got to our campsite beside a lake, it's a crystal clear and cold water. Luckily we had the entire lake
for ourselves. We relaxed for the rest of the day.
Going home, bye .....

It wasn't long that we had to leave this lake. Very quiet, and not crowded at all, except 2 female hikers from Germany
lost their way. They were quite beat-up.
