Perfect Boundary Waters experience

There's a chance for some beautiful weather in the Boundary Waters, and this last week was just right. We enjoyed several perfectly still days on a five-day trip recently. This wild rice sunning itself on the surface of the water didn't have the slightest breeze to push all the blades in the same diretion.

This is how our guides celebrate July 4th on the water!

The fishing was worthwhile -- our group got a few walleyes - enough to enjoy a fish fry dinner. This little walleye lived to see another day, but it was a lively subject for a portrait!


We finished the last twenty minutes of our trip while portaging in a bit of rain (well, downpour!), which seemed a fair trade-off for five days of beautiful weather!
