Paddle Break around Pen Lake

 Been away for a while with the family up north. Unfortunately some issues prevented me from getting out in the canoe for more than a few hours so I took the opportunity to explore the cottage lake. At the extreme other end of the lake (about 6km away) is a large vertical cliff face named "Wolf Mountain". This end of the lake has been left fully undeveloped by the owners and features a a steep trail climb to a granite overhang where you can dangle your legs over. The view is quite stunning and it's a popular spot for locals to visit and sometimes camp overnight.
