Again River Waterfall Expedition
The nearly 100-kilometre long Again River was only added to the map of Canada in the 20th century as a result of aerial photography. After two failed attempts, Adam Shoalts reached the river's isolated headwaters in 2012 by a tortuous overland route to explore it, an experience that he blogged about for Canadian Geographic . Given the unexpected discovery of the seven waterfalls, Shoalts, with backing from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, will return to the river, retrace his arduous route and this time photograph, measure and document the precise location of each waterfall so that they can be added to the relevant topographical maps pending verification from Spot satellite imagery.
