Its -26 F outside here in Northern Minnesota as I edit this show. Its nice to remember the hot days paddling in the BWCAW. This day was especially hot requiring a dip in the lake at most portages. We paddled and portaged for over 8 hours until we found an open camping site on Knife lake.
The portage leading into Knife lake led us to a nice little set of rapids. The crystal clear water in Knife was quite refreshing. We hopped in the water at the end of the portage and let the fast moving water revive us for the next bout of paddling. It was a good thing too, we were expecting to find a camping site in the next hour or two, but it wasn’t for another 4 hours of paddling that we came across a campsite that wasn’t either taken or surrounded by the scorched land of a previous forest fire. All in all it was a very nice day out on the water with some spectacular views.
