June 6

I was on the water by 8:30 AM paddling towards International Falls.  I had only 5-6 miles to go so I took my time.  It was cool out for June 6th, but the wind was calm (tolerable) this morning.  I arrived at International Falls at 10:30 AM and did an interview with the newspaper for International Falls.  I portaged my kayak and equipment through town to get around the dam and the Boise Cascade Paper Mill.  The portage was mile, but did not seem overly difficult after all the portaging I have done so far I am in pretty good shape.  At 12:30 PM I set the kayak in the water in the Rainy River at the exact spot I will pick up the trip in the future.
