    Favorite lake on the boundary waters. If fishing always a good lake for fishing. If in good shape you can make it in one day, approx. 9-10hrs. Wind is usually to your back heading in. When heading out, go early and try to avoid the wind as it comes from the west. Alice, Insula and Hudson lake can be brutal with wind. Alice and Insula are larger lakes, Hudson is smaller but in the burn area and there is not break from the wind. Use common sense and have fun.

    This wasn’t a hike exactly. It was mostly a canoe trip. Lots of portages that qualify as mini hikes though. Some of them were pretty brutal after we’d been paddling against the wind. Beautiful, peaceful area. I’d go back there right now if I could.

    12-24-18 - Eagle mtn. Beautiful winter wounderland in Minnesota’s BWCA Superior National Forest. MN’s highest point. Attempted this hike a year ago with -20° & very windy (doable with good clothes & boots). About 2/3 rds way, at Whale lake, snow became too deep and we didn’t have snow shoes. Today it was +19° and calm with fresh snow. Stunning. Made it to the top. Snow shoes not needed today. From Whale Lake junction up to summit we did use Yaktrax - like ice cleats on our boots as terrain gets steeper and uneven with rocks beneath snow. Hiking poles helpful this last section too. No problem following the trail & Gaia worked great. Amazing,, but at the summit we had cell phone and data reception. But not along the trail or at trail head though. Fresh snow hanging heavy on trees and view from near top make this hike a must do in the winter.
