Some want exercise and a full body workout. Others quietly pull out at dusk to watch otters feed and osprey hunt. Some want to camp. They load their Wine Glass Wherry Row Boat with waterproof gear bags and row off for the weekend, or longer.(Do online search for: Bowron Lakes Wine Glass Wilderness Expedition) for a description of a 15 day trip Pygmies took in Northern B.C.
