Hey SC, how oxymoronish that your "motly crew" is standing under a sign that says "Keep Quetico Clean"

cowdoc - more ironic than oxymoronish. We were going to pack out the old rusty car that someone carelessly left along the Beaverhouse/Quetico portage, but it was just too early in the trip and we had a fully loaded food barrel.

Snowbank --August 2007 We found out at the EP that our rented canoes leaked. We watched the gear while the guys drove back to get a couple canoes that would keep the lake on the outside.

This was at EP #23, on a windless day. We had just made our first portage of the trip down to Mudro Lake, and found this returning for the second load. A big surprise awaiting someone after their trip.

The Mudro Lake entry point in Sept. 2007. Coming back this way 5 days later and it would be 30 feet wide with a strong current. Got a lot of rain that week!

Take-out (September 21, 2007) and a traditional toast to another good trip. This trip started and ended at Kawishiwi Lake (Entry 37). Little Saganaga was reached via a meandering path that took us through Beaver, Smite, Adams, Boulder, Ledge, Vee, Fee, Hoe, and etc (relaxed pace of travel). We entered on Sunday (September 9) just after the fire ban was lifted. The weather was a "bit" unsettled over the entire time, but water levels were excellent. The connection to Boulder from Adams was as simple as a pull-over (in marked contrast to nearly impassable conditions in 2006). Cheers.
