Great report, have done that route myself and loved it. Have been to Ima 4 times and have had an "weather adventure" each time. I think she doesn't like me.

We made the same mistake on the Fishdance portage, it is a bummer when you realize how much easier the real portage is.

Yep, I didn't even tell the others how nice the other one was. Glad we're not the only ones!

Awesome, great reading your trip report. Thank you for sharing.


May I ask, what tent or tents did you use?

I brought my REI Mountain 3 tent (and loved it!). The other tent was a Kelty but I don't know what series.

I've been on Ima twice with the same experience (although this one was much worse). I think the name should be "Ima Ocean" :)

By judging the south landing I can imagine what the portage looks like. Not to mention the look on your face when you walked back to our canoe! But I have an awesome video of the "non-portage" trail!

I agree. Ima Ocean is the perfect name for it.

Have a great trip! If you have any questions about the route, I have all my trip notes and tons of pictures from along the way.
