We decided to explore the west end of the park last weekend because we’re heading to Philadelphia this weekend! I am glad we did because the weather cooperated and we spotted all sorts of wildlife. On Friday afternoon we set out to explore Gold Portage. Gold Portage is at the Northwest end of Kabetogama Lake, it is a less frequented area with plenty of waterfowl.

E also started his Kettle Falls Cruise tours last Sunday! It was a sold out boat and he had very happy visitors on the return, I was so proud of my Park Ranger! I on the other hand am continuing to hold up the walls in the visitor center Sunday through Thursday.
I have some very sad news to share… I was a little saddened when we seen the porcupine on the way to work in the morning but E scrapped him off the road and flung him in the ditch to decompose. Even worse, I was absolutely devastated when we saw turkey vultures flying ahead-another fawn was hit! If you know me, you know I love deer…it was tragic.

However to avoid another wildlife travesty my wonderful Park Ranger friends helped the painted turtle cross the road.

We’re on our way to Philly in the morning for E’s brother Aaron’s wedding! We’re hoping to grab a Philly cheesesteak before the weekend is over! Gino’s or Pat’s??
