Finally back in the BWCA
8:30 – left Entry Point 47 on Poplar Lake - Sunny and warm. High was in the mid 80’s. Wind picked up as the day went on out of the west making paddling tough. Horseshoe, Gaskin, and Winchell all dead into the wind paddles.
Had Lunch on site 627 on Gaskin – Awesome site – We had summer sausage and cheese sandwiches.
Long tough day – arrived at our site (761) on Winchell Lake at about 3:00. We were very tired. We loved the site. Great landing for swimming – nice protected tent area and buggout spot. Got camp set up, went swimming, and had supper around 6:00 – steak and mashed potatoes. 7:00 it started to rain. We were able to be out of the rain in the buggout.
Night was terrible – very stormy – lots of rain and lightning – large lightning strikes on the lake. We didn’t sleep much. 1.7 inches of rain was what was reported.
