Trip Introduction:
I took a group of newbies to the BWCA. It was a more "laid back" trip for me. I'm a "work hard-play hard" person. I used the trip to show them a good time and I enjoyed more of the little things the BW has to offer. Trip report is just pictures of those "little things" we sometimes miss while we are taken in by the Grandiose of the BW. Enjoy
