We listened as a wolf howled, seemingly right outside our shelter the first night. Yes, there are wolves on Isle Royale, and as the days wore on we would see their scat on the trail during the day, and hear them at night.

Great tale! I knew there were some shelters but didn't know how plentiful they were so I assume you were packing shelter alternatives. Are you going to post up details of your load out?

The shelters are only in a few spots on the coast. There are none on the Minong and Greenstone Ridge.

Our loadout was pretty basic but yes I should share that here :)
