Started at Grant Village visited the Flat Mountain Arm and the South Arm before finishing at Sedge Bay. Paddled close to 50 miles total. 3 people in the group. 1 Dagger blackwater13.5 tandem kayak. 1 Wilderness Systems Tsunami kayak. 1 Wilderness Systems Epic kayak.
After shuttling a vehicle to sedge bay we left Grant Village heading for camp site 7L2 Breeze bay.
He had a good lookout spot.
First night's camp spot. Look closely and you can even see the bear bags hanging. Was a nice spot. looking across the lake you could see parts of the park road.
Boats were still there after a good nights sleep. Nice calm morning to start.
More of the views from around camp. Lots of dead fall as you walked around away from the lake. Went on a nice little hike. Didn't see any wildlife execpt the little buck from the previos pictures. If you had time you could make some headway exploring. Most of the terrain was scattered deadfall with sparse green trees so visibility was pretty good.
Campsite 7L9 Flat Mountain Arm south. Look closely for the tent. Hard to find a tent site close to the water here.
Always calm in the AM. View from camp. Treated to Trumpeter Swans and Sandhill cranes serenading us first thing in the morning.
The Trout were big.
Hard to find a flat spot to put the tent. No sign of anyone else being there lately pitching a tent. Just made the best of a grassy area. Looks really good for wildlife viewing but we didn't see anything. Lots of noisy Sandhills in the morning was treat though.
Calm morning as usual.
Peale Island Patrol Cabin. Coolest patrol cabin spot you could ever imagine!
Waves were huge as we were coming into camp. Photo does not due the waves justice. They were monsters, we had to pull the kayaks higher up the bank a couple of times to keep them out of the wave's reach. It was truely something to witness.
Calm after the storm.
I had read that this side of the Promontory was full of mosquitoes due to Alder lake being there. This was an understatement. We had to run from the beach to the tent. They were by far the deadliest hungriest mosquitoes you'll ever come across. This campsite is not recommended unless it is winter and they are all dead. Beach area was fine but once you left the beach they were all over. Only place on the trip we even encountered them really.
