curtain falls, very late October 2008, solo trip, i have not seen anybody for several days. it appears that i am the only person up here. the river is very high and the currents on the american side make the portage access very chancy. i choose canada for a portage but none exists, as far as i could tell. however it is a stand of old growth pines that make a fairly easy bush portage.

I was surprised when I saw how many pictures I have of rivers and streams! I have pics of: Temperance River, LIS, Kawishiwi River, Basswood River, Stuart River, Moose River, Horse River, Dahlgren River, Kelso River, Cherokee Creek, Ada Creek, Picket Creek, and perhaps more. It was hard to choose one, but here is a picture of a walk through portion of the Horse River somewhere between Horse lake and Basswood Falls.

Nina Moose River
Here's an old one from my first trip in 1984. It's on the Cross River between Round Lake and the Northwest end of Gunflint where we were parked at the public landing. I doubt many (and I would never do it again) have tried that. I think we walked on those slippery rocks more than paddled! But it WAS pretty scenery, and very pristine. TW

Stream between Burke & North Bay of Basswood

The Kawishiwi River flowing into Malberg Lake. Great Smallie spot.
This is the stream exiting Sawbill Lake on the south side...not sure of it's name.
