Scary moments with that moose!

Thanks for posting the trip report.

Great report. Lots of pictures give a vivid image of what to expect.

Looks like you had good weather.

That's an excellent summary of your trip.

It shows what to expect.

You did a great job covering many days of travel in about 15 minutes.

I put your video up on the big screen. Really looked great! I also let it play into the Obukowin Portage video. Brought back a lot of umm.. ?nice? memories of those portages.

Thanks, when I made the video it was made for me to relive the trip in later years so some segments, like the waterfalls, are lengthy. It is a nice area to paddle even if you do not portage across to the big rivers. If you do get that far the possible loops make for a long list.

Looks like you were a little short on water on the Wanipigow and Broadleaf, that seems to be a recurring theme lately. We ran out in '13 and '15, too skinny to get north of Leaf Lake both years.

Being wind bound on Aiken's is an easy thing, we had two days on an island with an East wind but I got into some good pickerel casting into the wind regardless. Aiken's really is awesome for fishing.

Glad you had a good trip and finally made it up that way, unfortunate we couldn't make part of the trip with you, but perhaps some other time.

Your GPS mapping should obsolete my original mapping of the route, mine being old school like me, ha ha.

I had plenty of water going in and barely enough on the Broadleaf coming out. We scraped a few gravel bars was all and pulled over some rocks. Entering the top of Leaf Lake we grounded out in the rice but backed up and found the track to the right and got through OK. I had made a gps track on lower Leaf coming in and used that to paddle through the rice on the way back out to the river channel. Karin, all your notes made my travels much easier. Knowing there is a campsite ahead allows for a more enjoyable paddle.
