I LOVED your trip report, sedges!!!

So much of this route is places where we have been, and of course this trip (1968) was the year after Spartan1 took his first canoe trip with a group of counselors from Camp Easton.

Great photos, and good descriptions. I am sure Spartan1 will enjoy reading this one, too.

Great report! Like yours, my first trip into BWCA/Q was with BSA, but as an adult advisor for a crew in 1978...

Love the old school trip report with pics. Bivouacked with out a tent twice and Lord willing won't do it again. Sounds like it worked out all right for you though. My dad had a pair of Red pants like that in the 70's as well!

What a great trip report and photos. I thought the photos came out well in the report for 110 format. Your report really brought back memories of scout trips I took with Troop 13 of Kenosha Wisconsin in the early 1960’s.

Great report. Really brought back memories of my own travels across the Grand Portage and westward just a couple of years later.
I have been at Prairie Portage dozens of times and always wondered when the concrete dam was built. I guess I know now. Great picture of Prairie with no dam at all.
Thanks
