We had originally planned to paddle up the Moose River from Nina Moose Lake to Big Moose Lake. We were planning to spend about 10 days in the Trout Lake section of the Wilderness south of the Echo Trail. However I tweaked my back recently. The long portages and rather robust travel schedule that heading into the Trout Lake section would require made me think twice. Plus, after more than 11 months without crossing a road, traveling to the Trout Lake section of the Wilderness would require that we portage across the Echo Trail.
After careful thought we decided to go where the wind blows us over the last two weeks of our #wildernessyear to @savetheBWCA. Yesterday we paddled and portaged from Nina Moose to Lake Agnes and today we are planning to travel to Stuart Lake. After that, time will tell. Two weeks from now we plan to paddle out of the Wilderness and meet a floatilla of wilderness supports near River Point Resort on Birch Lake, which is the site of the proposed Twin Metals mine. Between now and then we are embracing a lack of schedules and plans, because there will be plenty of those awaiting us two weeks from now.
One of the many gifts that Wilderness provides is a chance to slow down and live in the moment. Please help us protect this national treasure. Visit http://ift.tt/1x2erSX and take action today.
