Nice, thanks for sharing. I wasn't aware you could hike to other ponds/lakes. If you were allowed fires you would have been cussing all the rain making it hard to keep one going. Glad it did rain to help the water levels and fire chances!


How many hours did it take you from being dropped off by the boat till you were at camp on the first day?

I think it was around 5 hrs but we weren't pushing it. A few snack breaks. But we did single portage.
