Welcome Rain on the Gunflint Trail

In the past 24 hours we’ve received almost 1.5″ of rain. The rain was much needed as the land was parched. Fire is a four letter “F” word we don’t like to mention around here. We’ve been fortunate to not have to deal with it for a number of years and with this rain we’re pretty sure we’ll make it through another season.

Paddling and camping in the rain isn’t always an ideal situation but it sure beats not being able to go camping due to wildfires. We feel for the folks elsewhere in the US who are dealing with wildfires and we pray for their safety as well as the folks fighting the fires.
