sounds like you had a very exciting trip

This was an interesting report. Your entire trip seemed a little sporadic and random. Haha. Glad you got to go though. A little bit of the boundary waters is much better than none at all. Sounded like you found yourself in a pretty dangerous situation out there. Glad everyone made it out safely. You probably made the right call by going to the bog as long as lightning wasn't an issue. You didn't mention that there was any. Hope you get to go on a longer trip to the bwca next time!

Now that I am back in the Midwest I hope to head up there in the spring. I will probably do another backpack trip. I have a different tent now, but it is still on the heavy side, more suitable for car or canoe camping.
There was lightning but it appeared to be mostly cloud to cloud. I did think about lightning while standing next to the solitary tree but I was just too scared to go back into the forest.

Near a solitary tree is a bad place to be when there is lightning in the sky... but wind sounded like it was a much more likely threat at the time.

Just added a photo of Gooseberry Falls the day after the storm. I don't think I would want to go over those falls in a canoe or anything else. More photos later!
