Trip Introduction:

Day 1 of 2


Saturday, July 25, 2009 Mudro Lake, Fourtown Lake Drove to Mudro entry. As soon as we got out of the car it started to rain. Shortly after it stopped raining and sun came out. We had rain showers the rest of the day. Neat paddle along creek to Mudro. Tough to find portage out of Mudro to Fourtown. Portage was rocky and wet from rain. Started to pour rain at the end of the first portage so covered packs with canoe. Went back along portage to wait for rain to clear. Continued to long portage between Mudro and Fourtown. Difficult due to length, mud, rocks, and steepness. Rocks were very slippery from the rain. Pressed onto last portage. One fothe more difficult landings into Fourtown. Steep rock face decends 15-20 feet to the water. I was tired because I carried the canoe and pack at the same time. Selected first campsite found on Fourtown. Riley found TP and diarehha in the woods! We covered it with rocks but he liked to keep getting into it. Quickly set up tent and tarp (since the rainfly was sent back to Sierra Designs for repairs) before next wave of rain. Latrine was hard to find. Took naps until rain moved out. Boiled hot dogs and lipton noodles for dinner. Watched great sunset.

Day 2 of 2


Sunday, July 26, 2009 Mudro Lake, Fourtown Lake Got up and took pictures at sunrise. Ate granola and vanilla pudding and blueberries. Fished and caught pike after a few follow-ups and lost my Rapala husky jerk. Later saw that pike surface to throw lure? Christy caught smallmouth and released it herself. Packed up and headed back to Mudro. 4 canoes going across first portage! Caught up to group of 4 canoes going back to Mudro.
