Sometimes it's all about the "little things".

I love your trip report! Lean. Economical. To the point.

I will paddle eternal, Kevlar and carbon.

Ice auger, folding stool and backpack full of tip-ups and jig poles were stashed along the portage from Winchell to Wanihigan. Either somebody forgot them or they are getting a good jump on next years ice season.

I miss the little things from the big BWCA. (Tear, tear, sniffle, sniffle). Looks like a good crew of BWCA first timers you had with you!


Here are some of my favorite "little things" from my trip this summer.
