Photos from October 2012

Post by fishmonger » Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:32 pm

Finally got around to sorting through the images from last year. Last boat to the island, and the weather turned bad accordingly. My knee also acted up, so instead of doing a full loop hike around the island, I only crossed over to McCargo and then when the rain ended, hiked back to Threemile. Didn't see too much of the island, but still got pretty good output.

When viewing the gallery, you will need to to click the View Gallery button to get the menu back on screen that lets you access the other image sections (there are 4 groups of images).

Arrgh! You people carrying your DLSRs into the woods! :x I've been TRYING to not bring a DSLR, and keep it light, but darn those photos are so nice..

It was fun to see the inside of the ranger meeting room where you waited. I spied the poster on the wall, and realized it's the one comissioned by the NPS from Charley Harper. My wife picked me up a reprint this Christmas. (http://charleyharperartstudio.com/shop/ ... IsleRoyale)

Great photos. It's definitely got my brain ready for a new season! Come on, spring! Thanks for sharing!

Awesome pictures. I could almost feel in chill in the air in some of them. Can you tell me what camera you use. I'm looking to upgrade my camera for my August trip this year.

just realized the flickr album isn't complete. Will be updating that over the next few weeks as I dig through my files for the latest versions of those other days. Until then, I guess the original link posted at the top is where everything is located.

Real reason I came to the site is to find out if anyone knows if there's a "last boat of 2015" opportunity like back in 2012 - I'm considering to go back this October if there's a way to get on and off the island at the very end of the season. In 2012, we had 6 hikers on the ship that was really already part of the shutdown of operations for the season, and of those 6 only 4 actually went on the island. There's nothing on the web site, so I guess I better call the park office.
