Brian, Katy and I arrived on Isle Royale National Park by sea plane on Sunday, September 3 ready to embark upon our inaugural backpacking trip on this iconic and isolated wilderness island. Our arrival had been delayed a day due to excessive fog on Saturday in Houghton, Michigan and the sea planes unable to safely take off and land. The video “2018 Isle Royale - Flying In” captures the exciting plane ride to the island. This video, “2018 Isle Royale - Part 1”, documents our first 3 days on the island with overnight stays at McCargoe Cove, Daisy Farm and Lane Cove campsites. The completion of our adventure will be presented in the video “2018 Isle Royale - Part 2”.
