Enjoyed the trip report - it was almost the same trip I did there when the Pagami Fire closed my entry to the west of the Gunflint. I stayed at the same site, paddled Paddle Lake, walked the portage over to Pine, went to Crystal . . . but I had headwind on the way out ;)

Big Tim,
I enjoyed hearing about your dad and son trip! We have stayed at that canoe lake campsite many times over the years. A real gem and I love how the waterfall puts me to sleep! By the way, aren't you from Arcadia,WI? I was born there and lived there until age 9. Safe travels! Marc from Red Wing.

Thanks Trout. We actually live halfway between Arcadia and Ettrick - with an Arcadia address. We always sleep like babies up there!

I enjoyed your trip report and the photos. We were up there in a cabin on the Gunflint the same week, and I can agree that it was a dry, dusty week! Came home with our car encased in a crust of dust all over.

It is a nice area where you took your trip, and it looks like you had a good time. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Big Tim,
Nice trip report. We were your neighbors on Canoe for part of the week. It was me, my wife and daughter. We met on the portage from Alder to Canoe. We were just getting ready to take off on Canoe and we heard you catch your northern!!! LOL Made me actually thinking you may have tipped the canoe.

Of course. Nice neighbors. Hardly knew you were there. Hope you had a great trip as well. That was our first time to Canoe lake. We'll certainly consider a repeat trip in the future.
