"The movement of a canoe is like a reed in the wind. Silence is part of it, and the sounds of lapping water, bird songs, and wind in the trees. It is part of the medium through which it floats, the sky, the water, the shores. A man is part of his canoe, and therefore part of all it knows." Sigurd Olson "The Singing Wilderness"
I wanted to share this extra picture because you can see the BWCA.com sticker on the stern of the canoe.
This was taken in the Ada Creek area on July 25, 2007. The high for the day was 94 degrees with 90% humidity, but it wasn't the worse day of the trip because there was a breeze. The day before the air was deadly still and the heat oppressive. And the day before that the temperature was a mere 93 degrees with a 91% humidity, but the overnight low was 76! No relief that day, not even at night.
I'm with you knothead180...I have a whole series of BWCA pix taken from my perspective (feet in hammock, knees in canoe, knees at campfire, snowshoes on ice, etc.) But for this contest I think I'll submit full body in Eddy Falls.
Sirs: I have taken a beautiful picture when I camped inthe BWCA in the summer of 2007. I would like to send the picture in the mail instead of downloading it since I do not have the capacity to do that. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Would you please send me an address to send the picture to? Thank you, joni
Its very possible, I try to pay attention to portages on the map, anything else was sight seeing and relaxation. Point me... I'm gone. I know we started from some southern islands off of Lac Lacroix and curled to the left thru some good size rocks sticking up in the water. 2 things reminded me of them, Stonehenge or cemetery grave stones. I believe at some point there must have been a fire there once because there were charred trees.
this was a hard one--i have enought summer days photos to fill
a book--smimmming--fishing--laying around camp...
but i think this really sums up what i love about canoe tripping.
going north on Agnes Lake,light breeze at my back,shorelineing
the "long point"..the blue of the big open sky and water..
and best of all only five out on a fourteen day trip!!!
and --yes--i went under that overhanging tree..i always try to.
The winner of the February Contest is prettypaddle. The trip report contest was won by hexanymph. The extra hat goes to HighPlainsDrifter who also submitted an excellent trip report along with his rainy summer's days photo. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone for entering!
