FS2004 – Fort Hope CYFH in northern Ontario Canada. This scenery is of Fort Hope (also known as Eabametoong First Nation) in northern Ontario in 2010, approximately. The population is in the region of 1,000 of the Ojibway First Nations and the location is on the northern shore of Eabamet Lake, some 100 miles east of Pickle Lake. There is no year-round road link to the settlement. The scenery between Pickle Lake and Fort Hope is typical of northwest Ontario; flat, numerous lakes and streams, forests, and open grassy areas that are sometimes somewhat swampy. There are no landmarks to guide you unless you have either a chart that confirms you are flying over the lake that is the right shape, or a gps.
