Rainy Day Portage
People often ask me, “Is there a place to hike in the Boundary Waters?” Besides the longer trails like the Kekekabic and Border Route Trail there are tons of places to hike, every portage is a hiking trail. I love to explore portages and while on canoe trips I will often ask to be dropped off at a portage so I can hike while others fish. The other day Elsa and I dropped off a couple of canoes at a portage and in spite of the rain we decided to hike the portage. It’s always so much more fun without a canoe and pack.
