We took a BWCA trip two weeks ago, a loop from Sawbill to Little Saganaga, Polly, and back along the Phoebe River. The water levels were very low. Here is a photo of the big rock at the south end of Malberg and a photo of the rock from 2014. As last year, with all the chatter about overcrowding and trashed campsites, we did not experience that. Between last year and this we stayed and looked at about 15 campsites. All were pristine, some were used heavily, though.

I'd like to hear about your trip Mason, it's been on my list a long time.
It was a good trip, though pretty wet towards the end. We took a very leisurely trip, as we wanted to do a lot of hiking (both in the upper section shown, and stop anywhere on the river that looked interesting). We spent 31 days lollygagging on the river, but you can do it much quicker (our 6 week trip in Canada got nixed due to Covid, so we figured we'd stretch it out). The scenery is pretty spectacular, as well as the wildlife (we expected to see more, but we did see wolf, moose, grizzly, lynx, caribou, Dalls sheep, muskox--I guess we're jaded!). We put in as far upstream as we could land, and ended up about 15 miles from Kotzebue Sound--403 miles I think. Dan Cooke, who was a few days behind us, paddled all the way to Kotzebue across Kotz Sound in stellar conditions--we didn't have those conditions.sized_IMG_2420.JPG
