Monday, July 23, 2007

Monday started off great with our homemade bisquits and gravy and we packed the gear into the canoe for day 2 into Ima....BUT....a dreaded BWCA mistake was about to overtake the expedition....reading the map incorrectly.... After portaging back into Parent we realized the error of our map reader,that being me....
So, with much disgust, we paddled back across the entire length of Disappointment...and into Ashub, Jitterbug, Adventure, Cattymann and its waterfall, and finally Jordan.......deciding that the 90+ degree temps had taken a toll on all of us.....

We searched out the 1st available campsite on Jordan and would you had a beautiful sand beach just waiting for us.....we all shucked our shorts and swam in our boxers, relaxing and cooling off in the aptly named "sky blue waters".

After swimming, we set up camp, and had something to eat and drank our fill of electrolyte propel/ filtered water...
Jordan was also a disappointment for fish ( one hammer-handle northern) but the campsite outweighed the no fish and we stayed two nights..
