Ditto the previous information. Especially the ones on the Rock Pond outlet -- they're what I call "overflow sites"; mostly used when everything else is full, or if someone is running out of time...

Glad you did the trip. That stretch between Rock & Lila is really nice *because* it's so much less traveled. Esp. the Salmon Lake Outlet & Little Salmon have a really remote feeling to them. It...

I did that carry several years ago, from the site near the bottom of Chair Rock Flow near the start of the carry, down to Grassy Pond. I don't remember it as very wheelable at all. It was long, with...

I was also at LTL last week. It was indeed crowded, though also everyone was pretty quiet. I often paddle out to watch the sunset. I was on Short Island this time, and one afternoon/evening I...

Ditto both Rich's comments. The Chair Rock/Grass Pond carry is much longer & harder than the Big Deer to Oz one (or even Lows to Oz); and I was carrying a Hornbeck. Besides the carry, the upper...

If I can ask, what days of the week were you at Little Tupper, and how crowded was it? Were there some open campsites? I've been thinking of going next week, but everything on social media is talk...

The carries are long enough, the take-outs & put-ins sometimes messy enough, and Shingle Shanty meandering enough, that going from Rock to Lila might take longer than you expect. The first time I...

I was thinking of owls, too. Long-eared Owls make a cat-like noise, and Barred Owls make all kinds of noises -- surprisingly loud.

If it *is* harder to find/navigate, you'll just have a more authentic 46er experience, rather than the more recent, well traveled & partly maintained, routes. And more solitude!

I like the Peterson guide to trees, but it probably isn't as small & light as you want (though I often take two Peterson guides plus a smaller dragonfly one). There are smaller, basic tree field...
