(For those that care to share)

With the deluge of rain we've had this past month..... I thought it'd be fascinating to see photos or videos of some of the well known waterfalls & rapids from those that have recently returned from a trip.

For that matter. Flooded portage trails or even some of the rivers up the north shore or surrounding area.

Ok, here is the falls along the 'Enchanted Forest' portage from South Arm Knife Lake to Hansen. After reading your portage comments Randy wanted to see this portage.
We went up to Amoeber, Topaz & Cherry from North Arm Knife; camped at Cherry narrows campsite then took the 110 portage up to Hansen, which was tough. It was very wet because of the rains. Spent the night on Ester then headed back to South Arm via the 120 rod portage which was actually easier.
Anyway we will now refer to this portage as the Enchanted Forest Portage, suggested name by TuscaroraBorealis

WOW! That was merely a trickle when we were there a few years ago.
Hope you guys had a great trip. Thanks for sharing your photo.

Thanks, Paul. We did. Definitely want to get back up to Hansen and Ester again!

Oh yeah what a difference! I think the rocks you & Vicky were sitting on are under water in my photo. It was roaring with all the water levels high after all the rain we had up there. Great place!

No pics--- but trout lake by kimball and mink was up 18" from late Tuesday through Friday,, and then a slight fall seemed to be in order. All from a 240+ acre lake that has a very small watershed.

I think you first have to post them to You Tube, and then you need to post the link. That said, great pics-they speak for themselves!
