If I had awakened from a coma today and someone asked me to guess what day it was I would have never guessed it was the first of July. The sun was hidden behind the clouds for the majority of the day and there was a light mist off and on throughout the day. The wind was blowing and the temperature only got up to 64 degrees. It certainly didn’t feel like the first of July today.
The forecast for the 4th of July on the Gunflint Trail looks a little more like July with temperatures expected to get up into the 70’s. This first part of July is always a great time to paddle in the Boundary Waters. Most folks are attending parades, family reunions and fireworks so that leaves the BWCA quieter than normal. If you are looking for something to do this 4th of July then give us a call, there are permits available and we’d love to see you at Voyageur.
