Last year we went to N Desor leaving Windigo at 10:50 am via the Minong .... So yes it's doable. We had a tough day though finishing at 8:10 PM.

After 25 or so visits, June is my favorite time!

Re: [OFFICIAL] 2015 bug report

Got home today from a six day trip from Windigo to RH via the Minong, Moskey, Ojibway tower and Mt. Franklin.
Mosquitoes are in full bloom! I didn't really get bothered by flies but saw many.

Re: Lake Superior Ice Cover Map 2015

You have to wait for a clear day to get a good look but these satellite images are a great way to see what is actually currently out there. The latest images appear to show a decent possibility of an ice bridge this season.
