Since I did even less planning than
normal for this trip one of the few
entry points available was at Angleworm
Lake - which is beautiful but is at
the far end of a 716 rod (2.3 mile)
After a couple more short portages I found
a good campsite.
Like many areas in the BWCAW there was
only an inch or so of soil over the
rock, so my tent had to be secured
to nearby rocks and logs.
Speaking of which:
I love my Northface Roadrunner 33 tent,
it's big enough to
be useful, light enough to backpack
with anyplace, and I
can set it up in the dark in only a
In spite of not leaving a very clean
campsite the previous occupants had
build a cleaver little enclosed pool
to store the fish they'd caught.
Speaking wildlife the only company I had on the
lake were a family of loons and little fish who
nibbled my toes when I was wading.
There was also a number of dragonflys,
including one that somehow ened up in the
water and quickly became frog food.
Since I was by myself I didn't have a whole lot of
time for scenery pictures, but I did manage to get
a couple nice sunset pictures... notice the clever
thing I was trying to do in the last picture.
