I was on Little Crab lake and listened to constant thunder as that storm passed to my west and north. I took a video of the lake just to record all the thunder.


At least you had ice for your cocktails. That looked like golf ball size. Glad you stayed in camp. Imagine if you were on the water with all that hail.

Wow, quite the hail storm. Looks like it turned out to be a lovely trip.

Thanks for the trip report. Good looking campsites and a bit of adventure! Sure is pretty country.

Time in the woods leaves no time for carving and drawing. Carving and drawing leaves no time for getting lost in the woods. I really need to retire.

Those are some pretty lakes. There are a lot of little lakes through there that offer a varied trip. I've always worried about the part that goes through the motorized area, but the interior lakes look worth the paddle. Hail and lightning wind, high water and bears. It sounds like an exciting trip!

Thanks for the report; I made it to Devils Cascade a few years ago and would like to complete the loop you did some day, without the bear encounter or hail of course! Seemed like a good trip overall.
