Stadium seating was carved out to sit along the falls and view the crashing water right next to our site.

I'm pointing at L. Basswood Falls, two falls catching into one basin in front our site.

Finding more and more cliff faces along Crooked
Lunch at Table Rock
Stopping for Lunch along Table Rock
Quick Pit Stop
Traversing through Crooked Lake to Table Rock then Picture Rock made for an eventful day with the storm at our back.
Making sure all of the gear was organized for the rest of the trip proved to be a great check.
Five Star Island Site
The 5 star treatment along Crooked Lake with an island to ourselves. If not for the weather this was truly a picturesque site.
The portage through Papoose to Friday Bay was very muddy, making sure to lift our feet with every step was crucial not to fall. Missed the carnivorous plants along the trail.
Leaving camp from Chippewa
A look at the campsite on Chippewa. Kept a constant breeze with three tent pads and the lake to ourselves.
Willy and I taking in the capabilities of the beaver and their engineering prowess. Making us traverse the one rod portage.
Break Half Way
Stopped for a break at the middle of the mile long portage onto Chippewa Lake
Confusion with Gun
False peninsulas proved troublesome for those with a map and directing the group along Gun Lake before the mile long portage
Depth Finder in Use
To be extra careful we made a depth finder out of rock and rope to ensure the safety of our cliff jump
Find the Depth
Found the right cliff, needed to find the best place to jump.
Break Along the Portage
Stopped for a breather halfway along the mile long portage
