Kanoes/moose plums - thanks for the comments!

I have to say that you all have helped to create a monster :D. We just got back from our first trip to the BWCA a couple weeks ago, and all of the advice and wisdom on this board was INVALUABLE! It's great to now be able to share a bit of my own perspective from this stunning place.

Red Beard - awesome reds in your sunset shot! You're living up to your name...

Sunrise, Island River, September 24, 1999
This was the final morning of my first solo. Frost covered the low lands and fog hung along the water. The sun seemed to blast it's way into the new day, and it was (almost) a spiritual experience.

"Cedar (Cedrus) is a genus of coniferous trees in the plant family Pinaceae. The family Pinaceae (pine family), is in the order Pinales and includes many of the well-known conifers of commercial importance such as cedars, firs, hemlocks, larches, pines and spruces."

Sorry to cut and paste on ya', but the topic was "pines"

kanoes and silentbeard:

Kanoes is correct. Silentbeard's picture is not of a pine. Silentbeard's Genus Cedrus is indeed in the Family Pinaceae but, unfortunately, the two species in the genus, the cedar of Lebanon, and deodar cedar, do not occur in the wild in North America.

The white cedar occurring in the BW belongs to the genus Thuja, a member of the cypress family, Cupressaceae.

With the above having been said, I must add that I am generally in favor of granting poetic license.

Kanoes: If you so wish, you may redirect your bow to a generally westward direction.

La Croix Island Pine 2008

this pine is on a island on LLC that i must have paddled by
a dozen times. this year with no timetable for returning
i explored the smaller bays and islands. unlike the wonderful
stands of Red Pine and the huge Whites i thought this tree
stood out as a example of old weather blasted ones that have
hung on over the years.
