I'm looking for suggestions for a 4th of July weekend trip.

I want to see how well my year of Cross-training has paid off. I have a long weekend over the 4th of July and would love to take my Souris River Tranquility on a trip to see some history in the BWCA, whether it's some pictographs or other forms of history. I'll be packing light, so could cover some ground if need be. I'd prefer to go in on the Ely side, but not restricted to it. I like the Gunflint trail side as well. I am open to suggestions. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.

Thanks.

A suggestion. Baker lake entry has the old gold mine at the portage from Kelly to Jack. Not much more than a hole in the ground but some people enjoy checking it out.

Starting at Mudro you would have several route options that take you into some areas rich with history. Mudro up through Lower Basswood Falls around Crooked then back through Boot, Gun, and Fairy will take you past the falls, great picto's, tablerock, and some campsites full of more recent artifacts on Fourtown lake. Enjoy your research and your trip!
