A brood of about 15 Grouse joined us on our portage on Ensign Lake. Not a care in the world. They just clucked and stepped out of the way> "

Doug Little portaging past rapids on the Kawishiwi River in early September. I was told this was his 54th trip into the BWCA.

Lower Pauness to Shell Lake. Portage to the wetland. Walk as far as you can go and then stop. Reload canoe with gear. Paddle across the deep stretch. Unload again and resume portage. Fun stuff and a beautiful spot.

Looks like Saganaga to me at the lone campsite that is southeast of the clump of campsites on American Point.

Another trip down memory lane, this time from our fall canoe trip in 2004. On the end of the 50-rod portage from Allen to Horseshoe there was this big fallen tree. It was nearing the end of the trip so the food pack I was carrying was quite light. I made it over the log, even with my short legs--no problem. Spartan1 was following behind me with the much heavier tent pack. I heard the thump, I turned, and I laughed out loud! He was also laughing, but he said, "Surely you aren't going to take a picture of me like this?"

Wanna bet?
