Wednesday, June 04, 2014 We were all up early and on the road with the sunrise. The group was in it’s Minnesota III’s by 6:40am. The morning started foggy and enchanting. We didn’t get any pictures, but I will always remember the image of fellow group members paddling ahead, disappearing into the misty morning backlight fog of Mudro Lake. What a start! What no one mentioned to us was that the creek leading into Mudro Lake was a bit tricky, we hit a few rocks on the way out. Don’t tell anyone. Once into Mudro it was smooth sailing all the way into Horse. Portages were a little wet, but nothing unexpected. By the time we were in Horse the fog had burned off. The Horse River was a blast. 3 or 4 fun rapids awaited us and we picked our way up the river, expertly or luckily, not hitting many rocks. “Many” being the key word of that last sentence. We got a nice campsite below the falls and enjoyed a few small walleye before drifting to bed to the sound of Lower Basswood Falls.
