Nym Lake day trip into Batchewaung. No fish were caught, but it was a balmy March 2009 day that barely required gloves or hats. Amazing how nice 45 degrees feels in the wilderness snow!

This is as close to a winter photo that could come up with and it was taken in October on the portage frome Round lake into Missing Link.

Photo Description:
Taken at Lake One on 01/18/2010 around 2:30pm CST. I think this picture provides a good perspective of great winter adventure in BWCA. When lakes are frozen, the dog sled teams are out and running!
