On the 20th of October, I helped throw the lines of the Ranger III, the last one of the year. It was now down to just me and one other ranger. We made sure everything was secure on the East end of the island and began systematically checking each campground on our way to the North Shore. We spent a night at Amygdaloid on the way to Windigo on the West end. After setting up life in Windigo, we patrolled throughout the West end until late October. I made it out on hikes to Huginnin Cove, up the Minong, to the Feldtmann Tower and up to Grace Creek Overlook.
Here are some of the highlights...
