Re: 2012 Desolation Sound Trip. Pictures.

Andrew, we usually head up the first part of July. The weather is usually pretty good, but we can get our rainy periods as well. Last year was one of those years. We had family drive up and spend a week with us and it rained the whole week they were there. The boat got pretty small pretty quickly. When we pull into our favorite spot in early July, there are typically less than a dozen boats. When we pulled in this year, (late July) we counted 30 boats. Our September weather in the San Juans is usually pretty good, although it really cools down over night and you can run into fog as well. I haven't been up into Faster and Bilgewater's neck of the woods in September. I'd really like to make an off season trip up there to find out though.
