You know... just out'a Park Rapids.
My Grandad had a cabin near the far end of Portage (opposite the hiway) & I spent a LOTTA wonderful days there. I think he said it was 11 miles down the twisty gravel road. We caught a lot of fish, shot deer, ducks, grouse, caught snapping turtles, etc. doing 3-generation guy stuff.
I wonder if you Minnesotans have any more pix on/around Portage? Is it pretty built up now? We used to catch 4" suckers in the creek by the hiway for walleye bait. Here's pic of me catching perch & panfish out'a Grandad's "titanic". (I liked to wear his old cop hat)
