Good report! Been to all the Ely stops you mentioned, you did well
Great report, sounds like you had an awesome trip. We were on the South Kawishiwi as well the week of 6/24 and saw the dragonflies take flight, quite an experience! I hope to get my trip report together over the long upcoming weekend.
Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed your report.
Nice report, Elden. Thanks for taking the time to do this write-up. The food was amazing! We were spoiled with the desserts in the reflector oven (photo below of the chef at work). A fantastic, well-organized trip. The people on the trip were super human-beings, and it made the journey satisfying and rich.
I always manage to be bug fodder, even when others are not bothered. Standing by my claim that I am an unusually sweet person. : ) The permethrin definitely helped-it was the first time I have used it.
Other BW trips, I've gone out of Sawbill area, so this was my first time in Ely & my first time at VNO (after hearing so much about it on the boards). I was very excited to be there. Also, the Dorothy museum was inspiring! I slept better in the bunkhouse at VNO than I have at home for a long time.
Watching the dragonfly emerge was a fantastic experience. We hit the time of year perfect for emergences.
A couple more pixies below.
"...baking cakes, cornbread, and apple pie in the reflector oven...." and no bugs bugging you? Heaven.
I enjoyed the critter shots, so thanks for those.
