My sister and I dubbed our latest Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness adventure “Lucky #15.” Everything we needed came our way or we avoided potential trouble with seconds to spare.

A beautiful trip despite some rain, wind, and cold. Nancy and I shared so many moments of laughter, beauty, and adventure together.
Can you believe wool hat and gloves in June? I’m treating our water with a UV SteriPen.
Some of the highlights included sharing our campsite overnight with a group of Boy Scouts and their Dads who were caught in a storm, seeing a bear on shore from our canoe, an up-close encounter with a mama moose and her calf, paddling nine miles in rain so hard that Nancy couldn’t see me in the front of the boat, and coming out on a power paddle ahead of big water and rain for which my paddling cadence was, One cup of coffee, two cups of coffee, … fifteen cups of coffee, switch.
I’m a foodie even in the Boundary Waters. Real eggs scrambled with peppers, onions, and cheese with whole grain toast on the side. The view makes all BW food taste even better.
Cloudy evenings make for gorgeous sunsets reflecting in the water.
Of course, photos are always the best way to share the beauty and excitement of the Boundary Waters with you. If you receive my e-newsletter, there will be more photos and news in the July issue being released soon.
