Nice report. We went through that area on a trip 2 years ago. We were the first ones out that morning and it was a perfectly calm morning. We'd hoped to see a moose but no such luck. The portage on the river is one of my favorites, very scenic and easy. Any pictures to post?
I enjoyed your report. EP #14 was my first solo and it brought back memories. Someday you'll read one in EP #14 and remember this trip, I bet. It's nice to hear you had a nice trip. Hope you get to do the solo or wife and you trip.
