Isle Royale September

Lake Whittlesey

Backcountry Patrol at Wood Lake
 Blue sky and warm temps were common in September.  Summer hung on for a long time and we were even able to swim well in to the middle of the month.  I went around the Southern and parts of the Northern Canoe Loops for backcountry patrol as well as a parts of the Greenstone.  Abba and Abu came for a visit in early September and we had lots of fun boating, hiking and exploring together.  As a family, we went backpacking down to Threemile.  Jasper walked the whole way...although it took quite a bit of convincing at times!  I finished off the year with 29 scuba dives within the park, including several of the big ship wrecks.  By the end of the month, we were packed up and ready to take the Ranger III back to the mainland in early October.
