Trip Introduction:
This trip was five days with my wife while touring a relaxed route paddling the border from Sag to South Arm of Knife and back to Seagull. This is my second trip of 2007. My first was a solo from Bower Trout to Ram. My wife requested more paddling, less portaging after taking her on a 4 day trip last summer from Brant Lake to Cross Lake. So I tried to plan a trip she would really enjoy.
Day 1 of 6
Sunday, June 24, 2007

After getting Jr. and Gus Dog to the sister-in-law’s lake cabin, we are headed north about 11:30 AM for the first night in Grand Marias. After a couple of stops along the way we make Grand Marais Ranger Station about 4:00 PM. We then checked in at Nelson’s Cabins/Motel $62.00 a night. It was all we needed. We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening walking and looking at the shops in the downtown. We had pizza and beer at Sven & Ole’s. Stopped at the top of the Raven’s Nest for a nightcap and picked up a couple of Rum soaked cigars. It was a beautiful evening overlooking the harbor from the roof of the Raven’s Nest.
