Where did the summer go?

It's difficult to believe summer as we know it has ended. The kids are back to school and the lazy days of sleeping in are no more.  The dry conditions and warm temperatures have the leaves on the Gunflint Trail already changing colors and the smell of fall in the air.

Even though September is here there is plenty of time to get in another BWCA trip or two. The temperatures for September are predicted to be warmer than average and the water temperatures are still nice for swimming.  Fish have been biting, moose are making appearances and it's a great time to canoe camp in the Boundary Waters. 

We hope you'll make it up to Voyageur to visit.

Relax, Refresh, Repeat

Nothing makes me feel more relaxed or refreshed than a wilderness canoe camping trip. Before I've hit shore on one canoe trip I'm already dreaming about the next one.

With the help of an awesome outfitting crew I was able to get out paddling quite a bit this summer. Mike and I took the kids out into the BWCA for 4 nights and into the Quetico Park for 4 nights on two separate occasions.

We enjoyed both trips immensely and had great luck fishing too. It helped to set up a base camp so we had more time to focus on fishing than we would have if we would have traveled each day.

For our BWCA trip we entered through Saganaga Lake with a destination of Little Saganaga. We paddled and portaged into Red Rock, Alpine, Jasper, Kingfisher, Ogish, Mueller, Agamok, Gabimichigami, Rattle and camped in Little Saganaga. On our way out we paddled through Virgin, West Fern, Powell, French, Gillis, Bat, Green, Flying, Gotter, Brandt, West Round and Round to where our vehicle awaited.

Our Quetico Park trip took us back to Blackstone, one of our favorite Quetico Lakes.  We portaged Silver Falls then paddled Saganagons to the creek and  ponds that lead to Blackstone. On our way home we portaged into two no name lakes, Slate and back into Saganagons.

The kids don't mind a long travel day in and out as long as we don't travel each day of the trip. It's worth it to them to be able to fish and relax once we are at camp. Any type of trip away from technology allows me to relax and get refreshed and always has me thinking about repeating it.

Awesome Voyageur Crew

We had another wonderful summer crew at Voyageur this year. Customer service can make or break an experience and I'm proud to say our crew made all of our guests experiences better than ever.

Their positive attitudes, willingness to go the extra mile and attention to detail was obvious throughout the season. We received many compliments about their performance and enjoyed each one of them.

As usual our crew took home the trophy at the Canoe Races held to benefit the Gunflint Trail Volunteer Fire Department.  Whether it was eating cream puffs, gunwale pumping or backwards paddling they took the medals home.

If you didn't get a chance to meet them this summer then hopefully some of them will return next year. We couldn't thank them enough for their dedication to Voyageur and our valuable guests.

  Water Levels Still Good in the BWCA

The water levels don't change to drastically in the Boundary Waters. The lakes are always navigable as are most rivers and creeks. The spring started out with very low water levels but after that they rose and held high throughout the season. All of the sunshine and dry hot weather has made the levels go down but they are still higher than most every other year at this time. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the year brings. 

Take a trip in 2012 or book early for 2013!
