Nice portage. It took us a little while to get across this one and by the time we reached the wide open landing on the Iron side, there was a nasty looking storm system rolling in. We may have to duck off the water pretty soon!

Not a bad portage going into Iron. Iron was a welcome site! Coming from Iron it is a pretty steep first hill 2/5
