Trip Introduction:
We had a great time on our first canoeing adventure.

Report


Intended to be on Seagull, but it was really windy and we ended up getting a tow, which put us on Saganaga lake. The weather was excellent for camping, not so great for canoeing, so we didn't paddle as often as planned.

We bought the Yeti cooler and really love it. (Thanks everyone for the reviews!) My husband fished a bit. Caught enough small mouth bass for a meal one night. Didn't see a lot of wildlife, probably because we were camped on an island (Voyageur Island)and didn't paddle so much. We had some wonderful together time with beautiful weather and beautiful scenery. We are very happy with our trip. I will try to post some pictures later.
