Yeah, that area is perfect for the first part of August & especially for kids. We came back up the GFT this year specifically so there'd be a good possibility of berries to pick.

Looks like a great trip and a great trip report, Driftless. Looking forward to more trip reports from you and your daughter's trips. Assuming you'll each be in solos and she'll be in her new-to-her Magic. Love lots of photos.

Hi Ginny,

Yes, she is chomping at the bit to do a trip in her Magic!

Looks like you had a great time! Did you get into any blueberries too, or just the raspberries on the portages?

Where was the campsite with the giant rock & tree trunk for the bench? That looked great!

Thanks, enjoyed hearing about your trip. I've never been in that area, nice to see the pics.

The Granite River was my first trip 4 years ago, with my then 9 year old son. We had a blast spending time together and have been back every year since, exploring different routes and now doing full week trips.

Glad you took lots of pics, you'll never regret it.

Nice! Great pics. Always have loved the Granite River route. Really cool you're getting to create those awesome moments and memories with your girl!

It was almost all blueberries, Mirth. That campsite was our first one on Larch. It was good swimming right off that site too. It was good fishing for that matter.

Pswith5, my daughter was really pumped when she "air paddled" the new paddles I got from you!

Nice trip report. Makes me even sadder that my daughter had to cancel this year. We will try again next year. Nice fish! Must be a blast on a fly rod. Hope you can do it again. :)
