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.

This is one of my favorite campsites. It is on Cherokee Lake in a grove of cedar trees. The forest floor is cedar duff and the entire camp is so aromatic!

This is one of the best campsites I have had the pleasure of staying at in the BWCA.
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?
Very nice site. Photo NOT for contest

Nice shot. Had to be interesting to jump into a hammock for a self timed shot.

We used that site this past June. Wow, gorgeous sunset and unusually active loons - beautiful.

07/17/2011 11:02PM
Sorry, I was in search section and this popped up. Cannot figure out why as I was searching a lake not even mentioned in this photo. It was the only way I could figure to get out and back to my search. (posting , that is)
