Thanks for the report. Something good to read on a cold December night. Maybe you'll get back to see the newly found pictograph some day.

Another great report TB. Thanks for sharing.

I entered at South Kawishiwi River for my first solo on Sept. 27 and was at VNO getting my canoe bright and early that morning. Only a block away from running into you. Sat was a beautiful day and so was Sunday until that rain moved in late in the afternoon. I was happy to have just finished making an early supper and to be at camp under the tarp eating when it started cooling off and pouring.

Here's a photo of several of the stumps (from trees that were clearly alive when cut) at the Gull Lake camp.

not only great trip reports--- but likely the best wood piles on a canoe trip I have ever seen....

The photo of the wood pile at the Friday bay campsite was taken just a few minutes before the "explosion". (Notice the rock and tin foil on the fire grate.)

Thanks Jeff.

I do like a nice pile of wood!

I've heard about rocks with water/moisture n them exploding....now I know that is not myth.... lucky that didn't ruin your trip.


That 'cabin' you mentioned is a boat house.... the actual cabin site was on top the hill. burned down accidently by campers. Was used by volunteer rangers in the summer....name of the book about it escapes me right now. He has authored several books and wrote about spending a summer there with his wife....

I've read and enjoyed several of his other books, i'll definitely have to check that one out. Thanks for the recommendation and link. Much appreciated.

I looked up your trip reports after CanoeViking asked about lake Paulson. What a great way to spend a blizzard day in the house by the woodstove - staying warm and dreaming about places to see in the BWCA! Thank you TuscaroraBorealis for the great trip reports. You should consider compiling these for a book! Has anyone posted more than 27 reports? Looking forward to the next one.

Awesome report!

Very nice detailed report. I loved that you included all the facts and history of the logging era. Enjoyed the pics as well. Also, doing that day trip loop on day 2 amazes me. I did that loop in 2007 on a solo from Mudro.

I went the same time period as you and saw two moose on Moosecamp. A rutting male calling the cow I had seen earlier in the day was a highlight. The fall foliage is spectacular. I had much better temps than you did though. Thanks for posting.

Thank you for the kind words!

Perhaps one day, when I'm feeling a little more ambitious, I will compile them for Aurora.
