Re: Itinerary Review

I did Hanging Lakes near Glenwood this June, kicked my butt. Worth the hike though. Beautiful! Oh yeah, that is a must do. 1 mile straight up hill with 1,000 feet + of elevation gain. Did that a couple years ago before the permit system was put in place. I hope that system will be much better for t...

Re: TR: 9/2-9/5, 2019 Rock Harbor to Windigo via Greenstone Ridge

A quick trip! Did it whet your appetite for another trip to Isle Royale? And I am also interested in your impressions of Voyageurs NP. We definitely will want to get back Isle Royale again in the future! Next time, we for sure want to get some kayaks out there and do some paddling and maybe splurge...

Re: Itinerary Review

Looks like a great trip. Glad you saw a moose, though they are present in CO. So what did you think of IR and how difficult was it compared to what you thought? I imagine getting winded was not an issue. What did you think of IR compared to other NPs you have been to? As far as difficulty, it was p...

TR: 9/2-9/5, 2019 Rock Harbor to Windigo via Greenstone Ridge

Day 0: We drove from Duluth to Grand Portage. Stopped for lunch in Grand Marais and ate at the Angry Trout Café. It was in the mid-50’s, but we still sat outside to eat. Food was delicious and we finished off our lunch with 1-oz. shots of pure maple syrup, definitely a fun and tasty little shot of ...

Re: Windigo to Rock Harbor Itinerary

We've both done a multi-night trip in the Beartooth Mountains and I have backpacked the Tour du Mont Blanc, Everest Base Camp, the Cutler Coast Trail, 500 miles across Northern Spain and portions of both the AT & SHT. This is a most impressive resume. My wife and I will be heading the opposite dire...

Re: Itinerary Review

Torpified and Hooky, I appreciate the insights. Exactly what I was looking for. I definitely am considering stretching Day 2 to Desor Lake South.

Thanks again for the insights everyone.

Re: Itinerary Review

Thanks for the responses! This is a nice community here and I am glad I found it before heading out to Isle Royale. Just a little background about me, visiting America's National Parks is my one and only bucket list activity. Isle Royale will be #29 and Voyaguers will be #30. My wife and I will be f...
