Type:Canoeing

Here are the pictures from a BWCA Trip my wife and I and dog Strider took in August 1975. We were outfitted by Bill Rom's Canoe Country Outfitters, and we had a tow down Moose Lake to the Ensign Portage. Our first camp was on Jordan Lake.

You can see that tents have changed over the years, this was the regular tent provided by outfitters in 1975 and earlier.
From Jordan we continued on through Ima, Hatchet, Thomas and camped on Frazier. We then portaged into one of my favorite lakes, Lake Sagus.
This is a still morning on Sagus Lake August 1975.



From the east end of the Kawishawi we headed west to Fishdance Lake.
We camped down the lake from the pictograph cliffs, and had fun catching Northerns.
We also broke out the reflector oven and had some cornbread and brownies.
From the Kawishawi we headed out to Lake one and had one more campsite on Lake 3. We had a wonderful trip and saw very few people until we reached Lake 3.BWCA 1975 Tripfish 1975Moose Lakefire 1975tentSagusSagusKawishawi campCookingEddy FallsFirewood on the KawishawisunsetMud on Adams PortageAdams PortageEnd of trip in Ely
