Thanks for sharing! Great pictures and a well told story. Glad you guys could find sites each night and even found a really good one. Next week was supposed to be my Quetico trip but that's not happening so now I'm living through trip reports like this...

The noises you heard coming from the dead Balsams on day 2 were Sawyer Beetle larvae. They’re not the ones that killed the trees, however. The ongoing Spruce Budworm outbreak is the most likely suspect.

I'm so glad to learn the answer! Thank you for reading and solving the mystery. Now I need to read up and learn more!

Did I respond to this already? I'm not sure if my response went through. In any case, thank you for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I also lived vicariously through trip reports on here all summer. We originally planned this trip with four people and two of them had to drop out, so I spent months worrying the whole thing would fall through. I'm sorry you aren't able to get up to Quetico this year and hope you can make it soon!

Enjoyed the report. Thinking of doing that route as a day trip in October

Nice report, I hope to do that sometime. Curious, did you simply want to go to Betty's Pies? Its not on the way to EP 32. Heading north of Two Harbors on Cty rd 2 is closest way to EP 32.

May the rivers be crooked and winding, and your portages lonesome, leading to the most amazing view.

Nice report Sarah. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and story. Nervous now with your campsite issues. We're going in the 20th .. guess we will see.
