I was on my 1st solo trip during that heatwave. Swimming was definitely my friend. Stayed on Horseshoe on the 3rd...very busy, lucky I got a site right as a group left at 11:00 am. Glad you got to do a trip with your husband. We are doing our first trip with just each other this summer since our son will be off on his own adventures.

Bringing my kiddos for their first BWCA trip in Aug. Picked Horsehoe because of the easy portages and easy paddle. They're excited!
