Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.

Jordan Lake. Late August 2007. The only trip, so far, with just my son and me. Brutally dry, fire ban, low water, leaves turning early - but this was home for a few days and we had a great time. I really should take more pics on my trips just for the memories.

It is on Frost Lake near the inbound portage.
Lots of space, soft pine needles on the ground,neat fire pit, shade, and beautiful Cedar Groves.

We musta been been the very nextcampers there? I read somewhere on here that the skull was initially at the site just to the east of this one. Someone musta hiked it over to this one?
