Trip Introduction:
Sister had lost her job and gotten a divorce, so our trip to visit our brother out east was cancelled. I hadn't taken my yearly trip to the bdub yet and was beginning to get impatient. So with the help of my three year old nephew, we all three went to the Wisconsin/Michigan border to scout the Turtle Flambeau, Sylvania Wilderness, and Northeast Wisconsin's wildernesses (Blackjack, Headwaters, and Whisker Lake).
Day 2 of 7
Thursday, July 21, 2011

Woke at 6 am and Carmen couldn’t find the coffee. Made eggs and bacon for breakfast. Paddled back to the jeep and went to see waterfalls. Carmen felt under the weather so we stopped in Hurley to get some Tylenol, which made her sick by the time we were heading out of Ironwood. Went to Saxon Falls and then to Superior Falls. Ran into a fisherman at Superior who stated the flies were terrible the day before. Well they weren’t too bad today (at least everywhere but our campsite). Proceeded over to Saxon Harbor and checked out the hill that Dad got his trailer stuck a few years back. On to Upson where we stopped at the city park and had lunch and viewed the falls. The Upson Park has 6 campsites for $5 a night most with a 110 V hookup. This was a very nice place and worth the effort, falls are small in size but very beautiful. Continued on to Wren and Foster Falls. Getting back to Wren Falls was a 4 X 4 dream and the falls were well worth the trip. Not much for Foster Falls. Took back roads/snowmobile trails back to TFF. Made it back to camp just before nightfall and had brats and salads for dinner. Note: went to remote places today and flies were never as bad as they were back at camp. Temp was back in the 80’s
