What I liked about the Echo Bay approach was combining the whack with a paddle. It meant having to pay close attention to the wind in the forecast.

Edit: check out this Caltopo link. The map will expire in 5 days. The red line is our exit route. Those bodies of water were open fens with great views upwards.
