June 2020 Brant to Kekekabic
Friday morning, drove up from near Milwaukee, WI and arrived at Round Lake by 2:15. First time driving the North Shore, and I loved the beauty and cool air near Lake Superior. The parking lot was packed out, but found a spot to park eventually. My goal was to camp on Bat Lake. I took my time getting there, found all three sites occupied, and passed on to Gillis. Met a husband and wife who said all the sites were taken, so I continued to Powell Lake. Arrived at Powell at 7:15. I loved the open feel of the burn area, and camped on the south side campsite. Beautiful view of the whole lake, and next to no bugs. Day totals: 7 miles, 10 portages, and no fish.
