My daughter gently guides her canoe through mirror glass waters on Square Lake, softly speaking last minute steering instructions to her neophyte canoe camper friend, before switching places with her. As with the torch of time being passed, so it is with the canoe paddle of the BWCA; my heart swells with satisfaction of a mothers job well done...

This is a picture of a canoe going across Pipestone Bay one morning while the steam is still on the lake. It almost appears as though the canoe is floating over the water.

I already have a photo submitted for the contest, but I thought some people might be interested in seeing this canoe. I believe it's 27 feet long and we got about 11 people in it. I had the pleasure of paddling it the past 2 years on the muddy Minnesota River.

This narrow stream was the best option to go from Hoist Bay to Good Lake. The other choice was a 69-rod, HORRIBLY muddy portage! Through most of it the channel through the rice was only the width of the canoe.

Because I always go on two-man trips where I'm in the only canoe, I don't have a single picture of a canoe on the water taken from elsewhere. But I liked this picture of my sister and her dog Larson in a kayak from when we stayed at the Fenske Lake Cabins a few years ago:
