Thanks for taking the time to put all this together. It was most appreciated & enjoyed. Thought the photo of the illumined tent was really neat. Maybe it said in the report and I missed it but, how long (ballpark) did it take you to get to Cattyman falls from camp? What a great daytrip that must've been...

Glad you enjoyed it. It was 9 miles round trip from our site to Cattyman Falls and it took us 5 hours with a few short breaks. We camped in the southern half of Disappointment. It was an amazing day trip as we had perfect conditions. Portages up to Cattyman took some breaking as they were 2-3' deep in places, but they were short and our backcountry skis helped.
