Trip Introduction:
My daughter just graduated high school, so we decided to take a trip with her friend as well as my younger daughter (and our dog Rosie). They wanted to experience wilderness and not see a lot of people, so we chose Angleworm as an entry point and thought we would try taking Spring Creek down to Sunday Lake in the Sundial PMA. The theme of this trip was rain. It rained at some point on every day, including 28 hours straight. We dubbed the trip "Les femmes du Nord et un vieux gars."
Day 1 of 8
Sunday, June 25, 2017

We left our home in Iowa early on a beautiful Sunday morning. By the time we reached Black River Falls, it began to rain. Little did we know how indicative this would be of the weather for the week.

It was still raining when we reached Ely and checked into the bunkhouse at VNO. After dinner at Dairy Queen and double checking our gear, we turned in early.
