We enjoy Wood Lake and it's been a good entry point for our family. I do hope the ice thaws before our trip in early May!
Thanks for cleaning up the campsite.
That was tough to read. I had naively thought the worst was behind us now. For what it is worth I am deeply thankful for your group taking the time and effort to clean up and haul out the trash.
"we all awoke around 2:00 for one of the most magical evenings any of us had ever experienced in canoe country. The lake was popping like it does early in the season which is what woke me. Dan came walking back to say that the northern lights were out. “No, really!?! But it’s a full moon.” Sure enough, the northern lights were popping brightly for nearly 30 minutes even with the full moon. As we sat and watched, a wild and primeval sound echoed from the east end of the lake as a small pack of 3-4 wolves began to howl in unison."
Wow, that was really cool!
Also, after reading your report, I almost felt like I was there seeing and hearing the wolves myself. I would have been scared - wolves can take down a moose, and I might be big, but not as big as a moose!
I hope you are able to keep living the dream as long as possible.
Trashing a site in the winter - doubly bad. Thanks for cleaning it up.
Thanks for taking the time to share your adventure.
