Friday, June 19, 2020 Up at 4:15 am. There had been a light sprinkle of rain that night. I ate breakfast and began packing. I set out at 5:50 am. Beavers were everywhere this morning slapping their tails on the water as I passed by. The morning was cloudy and cool, and the brush along the portage trails very wet. Saw a Spruce Grouse on one of the portage trails. I wised up this trip and double portaged which surprisingly didn't cost me any time. I made it back to Kawishiwi entry point by Noon which brings this short trip to a close.
