Thanks for the nice trip report and photos. We did this route quite a number of years ago - basecamping on the same island. It was a great spot!

Some great pictures, I love canoes and fog. Hope you catch some fish next time.

Nice relaxing trip. Thanks for the neat pictures. I camped on that island once a long time ago in the late fall. It was a great place to be as after a sunny calm day paddling in, we got winded in and on day 3 or 4 we woke up in the morning to 4-5 inches of snow on our tent. We decided to leave and fought the wind from the north back to the put-in, where of course as soon as we landed, the wind quit and the sun came out. Sigh.
