Alton to Wonder

Boundary Waters portage
Posted by: happydonuts
Season/Year: Spring 04
Water Level: low
Length: 180 rods
Rating: difficult
Additional Perspectives:

Portage Description:
Lot of trees down, rough going, hilly so it is tough with a canoe on your back. A few sharp corners so it was hard to proceed in some areas and it felt very long. In some places there were some mud pits and boggy areas.

Lake after portage: Wonder
Known campsites: 1
Lake Description:

Not much to see. All the trees were blown down by the storm that went through a while back, so it kinda takes away the nice view you would expect from a BWCA lake. Only one campsite is still open , the other one is covered in fallen trees from the storm. Fishing was below average. Campsite was not the best but had a nice breeze blowing as it was facing west, toward the lake.
