Thank you for posting this.

Wow. You survived, that’s what matters. I just returned from the baker entry. I was concerned for all the other paddlers up there. Conditions are very dangerous and will remain so for at least another week. We took the first open campsite and base camped and scrapped our planned route. I can’t over empathize how dangerous it is currently.

Have you heard of anyone found your canoe or other gear?

Wow - a harrowing story! Glad you made it out OK.

sounds like you are lucky to still be here and able to write this story.

Fascinating story and a timely reminder that the BWCA can get nasty without warning. It leaves you wondering what would have happened to a less-experienced, less level-headed, and less resolute camper.

Amazing story. Glad you made it out. Will make all future trips look easy.
