Thanks for the report. I'm thinking about spending a day in Sylvana on my way to the BW. Your report reinforces that plan.

Thanks for sharing. I have been thinking about a trip to Sylvan and this added a little more fuel to the fire.

tom- the bugs were not too bad until the trip back tothe car...that was awful. By the car it was like something out of a horror flick!
The fire grate is sunk in the ground, very nice when it's windy....and the johns are a cut above. I agree, the lid is a nice touch.
As far as winters, I like them, so that's ok. Slush season in late march and april gets old though.

Very nice. That is certainly a different forest than the BW. How were the bugs? It seems like the fire grate is sunk in the ground? and the johns are a little nicer with a lid and all.

It's cool that you are so close to these places being in Duluth. I envy that but not your long winters. Thanks for posting and the fine pics too.

Totally agree on 3 days or 10 days...still too short!
