9:00 Am left island on West Side of Crooked Lake and paddled short distance to Curtain Falls. Portaged around Curtain Falls into Iron Lake. Wind changed and was in my favor so I was going to take advantage of this blessing. I paddled across Iron Lake and portaged into Lac La Croix, a large lake about 25 miles in length. With the wind in my favor I made good time and paddled most of the way across and camped on an island just before the next set of pictographs.
