You took some awesome photos. I especially like the one of the spruce grouse, they seem like a bonus when you get to see one compared to all the ruffed grouse.

Thanks for the report. Really nice pictures (as usual). That southern site on South Temperance is a nice site. Stayed there 3 days several years ago. The picture was taken from that site.

My report of the same area (and same week) will be coming soon, but some sneak previews that you allude to- blueberries were ripe on the south site on south temperance along with the raspberries, but there were plenty that still needed to ripen, you should have stopped over :) Fishing was poor and got poorer on South Temperance as the week went on. The portages between Jack, Weird, and South Temperance were cleared by a FS crew that came through on Thursday. Either way, its very interesting to compare notes to someone who had a similar experience to ours. Glad to hear your trip went well!

Just came across your trip report while researching this year's trip with my 3 sons, DDIL, 2 German Shepherds and one poodle mix.
Your photos were outstanding. Some beautiful scenery and wildlife shots.
I loved how you stated there were 4 of you. Our dogs are part of our families for sure even after they can no longer run beside us.
