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!

Fishguts... That's the best winter picture I've ever seen...a full tackle box patiently waiting for spring and fishing season.... GOOD ONE

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!
