I was in the boundary waters for 6 nights with 2 of my friends. Are loop was about 67 miles and we hit 17 lakes along the way.
We found a nice island campsite one night but there was a note left by the firepit. The note was in a ziplock bag for other campers to read. It says:
Sow Bear with cubs on Island! Not aggressive but way persistant. Hang your food bag well away from tree. Great campsite but she will get your food if you fake it.
It was a small island. We only crashed there one night. This is what you do with your food pack when you are in the Boundary Waters.

Our transportation device. A Minnesota Three, made by Wenonah. 20 feet long and 52 lbs I think. She goes.

Rock Cliff. This rock cliff had pictographs.
Cheesy sunset. I made a tripod with some sticks to take this shot. I like the reflection from the clouds.
