Just got back from my 2nd trip to the BWCA. First time was about 25 years ago. Was an awesome trip. We did 40+miles in 7 days. One thing I had noticed was all the dang airplane noise. What's the deal? I always thought the BWCA was a no fly zone.
Forest service planes are patrolling the area. It’s not a total no fly zone. That would make no sense. They have to fly over 4000 feet above as I remember. Also rescue planes can land on lakes to get people.

I read somewhere that there were a number of small lightning caused fires in the Quetico/Superior in the past few weeks. Not big enough or threatening enough to be newsworthy but probably the cause of the extra airplane traffic.
I saw/heard beavers on floats last week. Isn't there a base on Sea Gull? I figured they were operating out of there.
