On a nice sunny day we leave our camp on Knife Lake traveling east along the boarder into Ottertrack Lake. We wind our way down this narrow lake with high cliffs on our northern flank. At our new camp we do a little swimming before cooking up some fish for dinner. What a great day in the Boundary Waters.
With temperatures hovering in the upper 20s Jesse and I head out to the Little Indian Sioux River. We had paddled this trip last summer and were excited to see how different things would look in the winter. We encountered a slough of wolf tracks right down the middle of the trail and expiernce some amazing views of open water on the river.
We continue our way North East from Vera portaging our way into Knife Lake. With crystal clear waters and a fresh breeze blowing in our face we work our way to the North Arm of Knife Lake where we camp for the night.
On a cool spring day we enter the BWCAW for our first trip of the summer. Light winds skim across the water as loons glide effortlessly along the shoreline. This episode brings us on a couple of small portages after leaving Moose Lake entry point. Join us as we begin our journey from the end of the Fernberg trail to Saganaga lake on the Gunflint Trail.
On a beautiful early April day with the ice freshly melted from the lakes Erin and I head into the BWCAW. Our destination for this trip is the easily accessible Little Bass Lake just one portage away from North Hegman Lake. The Sun shining through the trees made for a serene portage through the woods.
