Trail? What Trail?

Seven strong young people with a zest for adventure allowed us to take a particularly challenging route, and cover over 50 miles by dogsled. Obstacles like scaling this rock face with a dog team started to seem simpler and simpler after the incessantly challenging terrain we regularly encountered. This is us leaving Lake One in the BWCA for a bushwhack on a winter only route through the woods.

Winter only trail? Or "winter only trail?" When Paul is involved I suspect the latter. Been there.

Looks like a cool trip- great idea for the participants. Been keeping up with your blog- makes me miss those days.

Rock on,

I've been keeping up with your blog. Makes me miss those days- maybe I'll put my degree to work in a similar way. The last hurrah looks like a fun group.
