That makes good sense!

The Voyaguer II trip seems like a special means of access to the Isle; the many possible stops along the way to Rock Harbor, an experience in itself.
"And standing on the the crest of the Greenstone Ridge, I suddenly had this desire to retreat north to where I just come, to stay in the backcountry, to spend another day in a place where the only deadline I had was to pitch the tent before dark."
