Another enjoyable photo report. We were somewhat in the same area (Juno/Vern/Brule) over Memorial Day weekend so, it was interesting to see some of your experiences weather/bug wise etc. Thanks for putting this report together - still haven't started on mine yet. :(

Thanks everyone for watching!


Paul - We were close... that would have been pretty cool to run into you again. The weather has been crazy. In 10 days we only had rain once... and that was just a couple tenths over night on May 30. It's definitely dry up there!

Great slide show! Amazing pictures!!!


Went in via Baker two years ago with my forever paddling partner, my wife, and stayed at your second campsite for a couple of nights. Was great to reminisce through your pictures. Did not take the portage north to Jack Lake but have that on my "to do" list of trips. Thanks for sharing this.

SPECTACULAR as usual. Just love this.


Thanks for taking my music along as well.

We all have to believe in something. I believe I'll go paddle.

Another beautiful slide show that brought back memories of my trip in Baker EP to Cherokee and back through Sawbill in fall 2019. Spent the first night at campsite 908 on South Temperance. That was a nice trip and new country except for Cherokee and Sawbill lakes. Thanks.

Really enjoyed your slideshow, superb photos. I was on South Temperance during your time on the lake (far NW campsite) so it’s particularly interesting to see your beautiful pics of the area. Looks like you all enjoyed a great trip with some really nice wildlife sightings. Thanks for posting.
