We went in the BWCA up on the Gunflint... on to Sea Gull lake. Spent the first night on Sea Gull. Next day we went over to Ogishkemuncie Lake and we spent 3 nights there. Then we turned back around and headed back and spent the last night on Alpine lake. Most of the time we were in the burn out area from the big fire back in 06' (i think).... it is amazing what fire can do to an area. As far as you can see it was all devastated (starting to grow back, but clearly not as good as places not touched by fire). One day we took a day trip up to Eddy lake and to Eddy's Falls... that was fun.
We also face some serious head winds the first 3 days. By day 1 we wanted to be on Ogishkemuncie... it was fun nonetheless.
The current fire is way West of we were... i know it's a part of nature, but it sure does a number on the system.
