Re: NOAA study of plastics on NPS shoreline

I wonder if this is the reason my filter (MSR Miniworks) clogs when filtering seemingly clear water from Superior.

5/11/53 SS Henry Steinbrenner

Norm Bragg was a lucky man on this date in 1953. 3 hatches on the Steinbrenner were blown off by a storm near Isle Royale and Lake Superior was filling into the hull. He abandoned ship in 20 foot waves and was picked up by a passing freighter. Bragg continued sailing until 1966 when he was lost on t...

The Tobin Harbor webcam is working again.

First Boat weather 2018

For a lot of the folks who have taken the first boat, this should come as no surprise. Temps in the UP got down into the teens last night. For those who are first time visitors on the first boat, bring warm gear.

Re: Opening Day Weather

I'll give it another week before pulling the trigger, but with the Voyageur postponing the first trip from 5/5 to 5/12, it looks like I'm moving my trip back 2-3 weeks. Temps in the UP not expected to go much past 40 for the rest of April. Can only imagine the Isle will still have knee-deep snow fo...

The one in figure 22 is what I remember. It must have been 1975. I also remember a water faucet at Daisy Farm during the same time period.
I remember a cabin just before the dock at Daisy that had a spigot. Simialr to the ranger cabin at Belle Isle.

Though not directly related to the IR wolves, thought some might be interested in this article about Mexican Wolf recovery.
