Crane Lake

After acquiring a permit, we hiked to Crane Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of Wisconsin, via the scenic route as someone neglected to interpret the map correctly. 😀

Set up the tent and settled down to enjoy several days of peace in the wilderness. I had hoped the sun would eventually be able to break through the overcast to enhance the ambiance.

Wasn’t going to happen as we packed up and headed out the next day after two hikers visited our campsite with an updated weather forecast which was calling for severe thunderstorms beginning later that afternoon.

As the trails were already a muddy mess (my boots took 4 days to dry out), I made the decision to avoid having to swim through the beaver activity areas we had negotiated on the hike in.

It was a good decision.
