Trip Journal/Log/Report/Diary: 

Beautiful country- unique forest compared to southern Boreal lakes. Beautiful chains of waterfalls lakes chain between Carrol Lake and Bulging Lake. Caribou on Rostoul Lake. Not all portages are accurately drawn so have compass and orientation skills ready. Paddling and portaging is similar to Quetico. Portages are marked by blazes.
