Good Stuff--


nice pics. Would like to get my 7 yr old in CROC before school fires up again. Thanks for the campsite updates.

Thanks for your story! Crocodile is one of my favorite lakes for day tripping. I think most people don't go there since it's sort of a dead-end lake for tripping purposes. such luck seeing those wolves.

quote Mocha: "Thanks for your story! Crocodile is one of my favorite lakes for day tripping. I think most people don't go there since it's sort of a dead-end lake for tripping purposes. such luck seeing those wolves."


As Mocha surmised, I'm one who's never been there because it's a "Dead end." even though I've started and ended a few trips on East Bearskin. As I've gotten older and the body's gone to crap, that sounds like the kind of trip I could handle. Thanks for sharing and NICE pics!

Your trip sounded ideal. A relaxing contrast to many trip reports. And nice photos.
