I found this article http://queticosuperior.org/blog/wildern ... ary-waters  very interesting and intriguing. 

One short paragraph grabbed me: "By examining annual growth rings in increment cores taken from tree trunks, we found that many pines at this site were more than 250 years old. Distinct injuries recorded within their rings denoted the passage of multiple low-severity surface fires that damaged but did not kill many of these trees. In all, 16 fires burned here between 1660 and 1909, after which fires abruptly ceased."
Just one more portage.
