Trip Introduction:
I had the stars align at the last minute for a quick weekend trip to try my hand at going solo. After searching for available permits and tapping into the great members on this site, I decided to enter EP 39, Baker Lake on Friday evening and loop up through Sawbill and Cherokee before coming back to Baker lake via the Temperance River flowage through Jack and Kelly. I'm not a big trip report type of guy, but I do like to take photos. What follows is a brief photo essay of my trip. Note that I took far fewer photos than anticipated since I needed to cover a lot of ground in basically 2 travel days.
