Boundary Waters #20 – Always Inspiring!

Itout450

My sister, Nancy, and I (on the left above) just completed our 20th trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness since 2002.  I think we look pretty good after being out nine days. It was, as always, fun, an adventure, AND inspiring.  Here are a few highlights:

Joining us for a couple of days were Nancy’s son Paul and the lovely Laura. Another boat to photograph!  Paul and Laura were married the Friday before we went out.  The invites were to celebrate their engagement at a picnic at a park; instead we celebrated their wedding in a beautiful ceremony! A fun couple we would love to have come along again.

You know I always love the big rocks hidden in the woods.  This one had two interesting features:  It is “calving” off pieces like slices of bread and it had bear scat nearby.

Love those beautiful foggy mornings.

Of course, the most inspiring part is being out adventuring in the canoe with my sister!

P.S.  Our record holds:  Saw four moose, two pairs of Moms and babies swimming.
