I had factored in the spring water levels (I'd be traveling upstream on day 1, lining, when necessary, on the Sturgeon R., Stull and Scarecrow Creeks till I reached Woods Lk) from there on it would be mostly downstream and lake travel. What I hadn't counted on was the numerous balsam fir and other winter damaged conifer blowdown on the portages from an ice storm and heavy snowfall this past January!
|one of many blowdown areas on the portage I cleared|
|a quick set up for the night|
|tower trail blowdown|
|winter wolf kill site|
Oh yeah, it rained on my return trip out - soaked to the bone, wouldn't have had it any other way!
