Algonquin Outfitters PORTAGE QUEEN Paddle CLUE #3
Just before (or after) the dip in the path, this wooden sceptre sits waiting,
Not far past the two hemlocks, water side of the trail, it’s all yours for the taking.
Still hidden well, amongst the forest trees, it can barely be viewed from the pathway.
Yet, a moose, bear, beaver or bird, may simply observe it from the parched bog-like bay.
But whether this celebratory find is remembered as golden, silver or ruby,
Will depend on the reign of the Queen who first claims it, as part of her royal duty.
