Apostle Islands

August 23, 2016 Posted by Deb

A repeat of the year before with a different campground (Big Sand Bay) and a much larger group. We started with four and before long had most of the Cast Iron Canoe Club and many of the Whiteface group joining us. The boat fleet was huge but wind and rain grounded some.

The trimaran made three trips to Sand Island and a grand tour of Raspberry, Stockton, and Oak. For that long run, we got to use our wet suits, boots, gloves, and other gear for the five and a half hours of being wet on Lake Superior. Nice waves, too.

Kinnickinnic Kayak

We put a Groupon for the Kinnickinnic River to good use and had a nice group of old and new friends to paddle with. A great day and a river we’ve been wanting to do for a long time.
