Snowbank to Kekekabic July 2010
On the road at 10:47 this morning for Ely. Stopped for lunch in Cloquet. Arrived in Ely at 3:25pm. Went to Piragis to pick up our permit and bought an axe for firewood. Stopped at the Boathouse for some good beer. Lots of people out and about today. Some guy driving around in an army jeep with a machine gun in the back. Circus must be in town or is this the new law enforcement in Ely?
We stopped at the Chocolate Moose for dinner and more good beer. They had a surprisingly good selection of beers. Very good food as well. We then drove to our destination for the night, Smitty's on Snowbank. Arrived there at 7:35pm. It was our first time there and on Snowbank. Had another beer at the lodge then went to our room and finished packing our gear for the following morning. Had our chocolate moose cake for dessert and were in bed at 11:45pm.
