Early Spring Paddlin'
Usually at this time of year I like to paddle some local rivers because the lakes are still frozen. That's not the case this year but I'm still gonna paddle some rivers. Some of my early season favorites are the Burntside and Shagawa (flowing into and out of Shagawa Lake here in Ely), the Embarrass (south of Babbitt) and the Little Indian Sioux north and south from the Echo Trail in the BWCAW. I hope to get out this weekend and will report next week on my adventure. Anyone been paddlin' any rivers up here yet?
