Trip Introduction:
the rivers on each side of isabella lake was an attraction for me in planning this trip. they would give us more new area's to explore, while basecamped on Isabella.
Day 1 of 7
Saturday, August 22, 2009 after a horrible night stay, which i ended up sleeping in the car due to the humming of electrical noises in our ceiling, my wife tapped on the window in the parking lot of the voyager's inn in two harbors at 4:30 am to say, let's get the heck out of here, we were headed north to isabella lake.
after finding most sites occupied, we paddled to the east end to find our dream 5 star camp open. we grabbed it, thrilled to be back in canoe country on a beautiful site.
camp was set up, a swim on a beautiful sandy beach completed the day.
