Beautiful photos! Dang! The glowing campfire is extraordinary.

I really enjoyed your report. Loved that last loon photo. You had some trials and tribulations, but the silver lining is that you learned a lot quickly and made changes before the end of the trip. I'm sure you made a bunch before the next trip; I'll look for that next report.

Thanks for sharing! Your pictures were awesome. I really liked the narrows shots between Thomas and Frazier. I’ve never been there, but plan to this summer during a solo trip. I’m going to look into that Y camp you mentioned for my kids and I plan on stealing your English muffin “bun” idea. Brilliant!

Thanks,

Tony

Great report of a nice trip; fantastic photos! Enjoyed reading all the detail, and recall making similar mistakes in early trips to Canoe Country. Thanks for sharing.

Great report. Just think of what you could have gained if your parents had educated you in the way of the wilderness when you were a kid.

Oh, wait ... ;-)

(I had a similar upbringing.)

Excellent! A fun read and great photos, too. My wife and I went through some of that area a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

Still a very inspirational story. I would like to say that all those little mistakes you wrote about are wisdom for your next trip. Mastering the craft of wilderness tripping is one learned from experience.
