Trip Introduction:
After the 2017 trip, which I drove up after work with a short nap in Duluth, I decided to go early and checkout the Hegman Pictographs and get a good nights sleep before the Nina Moose trip with Cousin Peter.
Day 1 of 9
Thursday, June 21, 2018 I drove up to Fenske Lake Campground, site 010, after work to get a relaxing start for the trip and test the Wenonah Encounter Solo Canoe, while checking out the North Hegman Pictographs. I was setting up in the dark, but I made it. In the past, I would get done with work and usually take a short nap at the rest area in Duluth, before continuing. This led to me running out of gas prior to the trip. Hopefully this will give me more energy.
