Jim Brandenburg aerial photo of Praire Portage headlining an article at Quetico Superior Wilderness News is pretty interesting.

Only been to PP once, from the north.
The sky view is amazing.

It's in the upper left of the photo. Basswood just barely makes it into the photo. I had to look at a map to be sure.

I have been to PP literally dozens and dozens and dozens of times. Somehow I can’t see it on the picture. Guess it is time for me to abandon the old paper maps and rely on gps so I will know where in heck I am on my trips this year.

The 2nd water area down from top left corner - with the island - is inlet bay. The top one is Poacher. Took me a while and google maps to get oriented.

Was surprised by aerial photo that looks like taken from BWCA no-fly zone.

Not a "no fly zone" it is a restricted zone that does not allow flights below a ceiling of 4000 feet. Considering that Basswood Lake is around 1300 feet elevation a flight would be outside the restricted zone a mere 2700 feet above the lake. Looks to me like the photo was taken well above that height.

Imagine if they dropped the water back to pre- dam levels on moose lake!!

Beautiful photo! I never would have been able to pick out PP without some help.
