These photos were taken on our 2003 annual Thanksgiving trip. We got a little rain on Friday, then much colder on Friday night and Saturday. We also had to deal with a many blown down trees that were blocking the river. Several portages and playing limbo helped up get past them with only one accidental swimbreak being taken.

There is one small dam that we portaged. Had it been warmer weather and without the camping gear, it probably would have been runable though. We did actually go over the dam, but then had to portage over rocks that were below it.
