Trip Introduction:
Over 10 years ago, we got lost (briefly) trying to get from Cap Lk to Boulder Lk. We got there, but we wanted to see just what went wrong, and what was the best way to make that portage.
Day 1 of 5
Saturday, September 06, 2008

Light rain kept my oldest brother and I company as we left the put in on Kawishiwi Lk at 7:30 AM. The journey to Koma Lk, our camp for the night was uneventful. A beaver dam at the entry to Square Lk, had robbed it of much of it's water, but otherwise there was nothing of note. We camped at a very lightly used site on the north side of the lake, nearest the portage to Malberg, a nice cozy camp for the evening. The rain did have the benefit of providing two very nice rainbows after showers passed.

A couple of fish were caught and released on Koma and then the light rain moved back in leading to an early evening.
