We were able to go in on Tuesday 5/10 at Cross Bay and we just got out yesterday around noon. Karl Lake was impassable on Wednesday and we couldn't get through Snipe on Thursday due to ice. We stayed at the furthest campsite on Cross Bay Lake. The water was crazy high, the storms were wild, and the portages were definitely some Type 2 fun! I'm going to make a quick video of the trip and will share it in a couple days.

Wow! Hard to believe that even a small lake like Karl is still iced over. I am thinking of going next weekend. I imagine the ice will be out by then, even on the Gunflint. I look forward to seeing your video!

Wow, that is a LOT of water. Also, amazing how late ice-out is. There is a certain pride to being the first permit issued for the year

Thanks for the video!

Cool video. Thanks for sharing for those of us that can't make it up there to see it for ourselves this spring!
