Video of an Unusually Overgrown Portage in the BWCA

Recently we posted a video of a typical BWCA portage. This new video shows a more remote portage that is on a designated travel route, but is more overgrown than typical BWCA portages.  It is the portage going southeast out of Beaver Lake, in a lightly used area of the BWCA.  The location is about two days of travel from the nearest entry point.  Even though the portage is somewhat overgrown with brush, there is still an obvious footpath underneath.  Most BWCA portages are not as overgrown as this one.
