I really enjoyed the report and the history of that area and portage. Thanks for taking time to let us know about the wonders of the area.

Yes, lots of migratory birds were seen. The longspurs were actually standing on lily pads in the Isabella River.

The long portage had a lot of use prior to the 1960’s and in many places, the portage path is worn deep into the soil. Use the GPS coordinates to locate the beginning. Once you get on shore, you’ll have no trouble following it.

Just read about this on

Excellent trip! Great to see that perhaps that portage is doable in the future. 3.5 hours for 2 miles of unmaintained portage seems pretty good.

Also cool that you saw Saw-whet owl and Lapland Longspur!
