To Mudro and Beyond

bwcaphotoFive of us took two canoes into the BWCA at the beginning of August. Mudro is a vicious entry… mountain goat path portages interrupted by piddly short paddles before having to portage again. After the initial hurdles are conquered, however, it opens up into bigger, beautiful water.

Siblings and spouses we paddled hard and found every site on Four Town to be occupied. Waiting out a downpour while on the portage to Boot, we shoved off again as the sky cleared and finally found a nice site on the north end of Boot. We just spent two nights and paddle out to end our quick trip as planned. It was fun, but felt short, so my conclusion after this and other trips, is that three nights is a minimum for a good, solid BWCA trip.
