Day 4.

Alice Lake to Sagus Lake. Stayed at campsite 1911. The day started sunny and warm, but a large wind storm rolled through around 7 or 8. 50 mph winds, no rain til after the front passed. Had to hold tarp down to keep it from flying away.

Day 8.

Lake Polly to Entry Point 37. Strong wind comming from the south all day. Hard paddling on open water. Kawishiwi was especially rough. Only point on the trip where I felt the canoe would tip was while heading into brutal headwind after leaving bay right after north entrance to Kawishiwi Lake, and before reaching first island in the lake.
