Pine Lake 2014
by x2jmorris

Trip Type: Paddling Canoe
Entry Date: 06/15/2014
Entry & Exit Point: Pine Lake (EP 68)
Number of Days: 5
Group Size: 4
Trip Introduction:
My yearly family trip this year: with my father, sister, and wife (pregnant). My sister mentioned that she had always wanted to go to Pine. I was kind of against it since it is such a big lake but I have never been there so I thought why not give it a shot, plus there were some brook trout lakes just south of it which could provide a break from the wind if it got to strong.
Day 1 of 5
Sunday, June 15, 2014

We decide that we will drive up to Tofte and stay at a friend’s so that we will be closer and can hopefully get to pine before the wind picks up. We arrive at the house and we all head out to Our Place in Isabella for dinner. Food was great as always and now it is back to the house for some sleep and hopefully to wake up early. Before bed my dad and I have a best of 3 cribbage match and he wins 2-0, so he is up 1-0 right now. The plan for tomorrow is to leave at 6 am.
