I just got this trip report from my friend Conor Mihell, budding writer and photographer. He lives up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and just finished an awesome kayak trip along the north shore of Lake Superior. I’m pretty sure it’s the first full trip along the north shore for 2010.

[blockquote]Hi Everyone,

Just back from six days of paddling 200-odd kilometres from Wawa to Marathon on Lake Superior with Craig Zimmerman. The trip was great--a nice mix of weather (warm enough even for a quick swim on day one), some rough seas, rain, sleet, cold nights and big beach fires to keep warm. We had great luck with strong south/southwest winds most of the time--pretty rare for April. Today the north wind is blowing and we're buried in snow here in the Soo.

Bye for now,

Conor[/blockquote]
