Day 1 of 4
Monday, July 05, 2010

We left home, SW Minnesota, around 7:30 am and drove up to Ely.

We arrived in Ely around 3 pm on Monday and after heading over to the Kawishiwi Ranger station to pick up our permit and then headed over to Jordan's Canoe Outfitters to bunk into our bunkhouse and talk with Mark. The bunkhouse at Jordan's was great. We then ate supper at the Rockwood Restaurant, the elk burger comes highly recommended. We did a little fishing below the dam at Birch Lake and then went back and hit the sack.
