Just got back from a Portage Lake Entry trip. Even though we had cool temps and wet weather, we never had a fire. Anyway, I think this picture is from June of 2006. It is on Sawbill Lake when Jim/WI and I were doing the Temperance River Loop starting out at Baker Lake.
Lake One on the last day of a nine day trip, September 2006. I had been on the other side of the island photographing the sunset and returned to find Spartan1 lost in thought, letting the fire burn up high, and wondering when I would come back so we could hang the packs. We usually go in June, so the short days in September were a challenge. The last campfire of a good trip is always bittersweet.
That’s not a campfire, it’s just smoke. It’s also a gorgeous shot! Love it.
Just a comment on soukup85’s. It’s probably just me but I’d be too ashamed to post that shot. Burning loose branches on top of the fire grate is not a good idea. Too bad, if the flame was only about half that high it would have been a real beauty. Again, that's just my opinion, take it for what it's worth.
Excellent Photo Wallidave! I havent been on this website in a while and when i saw the winning pic i said to myself, that looks familiar. I camped in that very spot 2 years ago, check out the photo, looks like not much has changed. That campsite was fantastic! great 240 degree views.
Well im glad someone else could enjoy it as well, how was the fishing when u were there?
