This trip is the first of two planned for this year. Once again, I plan to enter at Isabella Lake, travel down the Isabella River (through prime blackfly and mosquito nurseries), and exit at the South Kawishiwi River. Over the winter, my friend Tom - with 35 years of canoe tripping under his belt - had some health issues that slowed him down, and I was concerned that he might not be able to mount his usual Quetico adventure. I also wanted to get past my own limited methods and learn from someone with a lot of experience. So I invited him on the trip and when he said he wanted to see - and show me - some waterfalls, we shifted gears to Entry Point 23 (Mudro Lake). The Isabella will be there when I'm ready for it.
