Sunday’s “strong north winds drove a point of the Pagami Creek Fire south toward the Isabella River. Approximately 50 campers from the river and lake routes south of the fire and 70 campers along the eastern front of the fire were assisted out of the wilderness by Public Safety Crews. Entry points near the fire were closed,” reads a statement from the U.S. Forest Service.
Saw northern lights, spent 3 nights at a sand beach campsite, ate walleye, and ended with evacuation due to wildfire. Awesome #BWCA trip.
