This trip was really the first trip that my group had taken that involved any real portaging. We started on Saganaga, with a tow to American Point. From American Point, we traveled through 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Bays, and portaged 5 rods to Zephyr. Here we set up camp for 1 day. The next morning we portaged 5 rods to Swamp lake, the made the 80 rod portage over Monument Portage into Cypress. Here we set up a base camp. We used this base camp for 3 days, making day trips along Ottertrack, and taking the 110 rod portage into Jasper lake for a hard day of smallmouth fishing. Returning from Jasper, we decide to portage into Ester from Cypress. This portage is an 80 rod portage that increases elevation 150-200 feet before reaching Ester. From Ester, we made day trips into Ashdick, Hanson, Rabbit, Link, and Clam Lake.
