Report


This trip is the second one for me this year. My original plan was for a 10- to 14-day solo trip on the Isabella and Kawishiwi Rivers with a possible side trip in the Numbered Lakes. Over the summer, my friend Sandy spoke longingly of going back to the BWCA, where she had spend many vacations as a kid. We worked out a plan where I would do a week’s solo trip and meet her to continue the trip tandem. I would enter at EP34 (Island River), do part of the Kawishiwi Triangle, and get a site on Lake One. She would bring a tandem canoe, we’d switch boats, and spend the next week exploring the Numbered Lakes and maybe Lake Insula as well.

It worked out, but not as we anticipated.
