8/15/06 – The fire ban will be lifted starting Thursday, August 17th. Fires will be allowed at any time within the BWCA Wilderness in the fire grates provided at the campsites.

The Forest Service is officially calling it 95% contained, but we don’t even smell a hint of smoke from it any more. The hard, soaking rain that we had two days ago certainly helped and it raised the stream levels a little bit too. – Bill
