After cooking french toast and bacon over the fire, we headed into Ely. We ran out to the Northern Lakes Girl Scout Canoe Base to say hi to the staff (who were absent), hiked at Kawishiwi Falls, ate lunch at “A Taste of Ely”, did some shopping, and stopped off at the outfitters (Ely Outfitting Company and Boundary Waters Guide Service) to get our permit and the canoes.

We stopped for another set of maps, then some ice cream at DQ before we got on the road back to the resort. After much giggling and singing along to “Minnesota Morning” on the road, we arrived back at the resort and made foil dinners over the campfire. We loaded everything we decided not to take back into the vehicle, then loaded our packs (which was challenging since we couldn’t open the back hatch of the SUV because the canoes blocked it).
