I agree, nice picture Moose. Our campsites always look like a war zone and I'd have to pick all the gear up prior to taking a picture.

Thanks for the nice comments, and Geezerboy, I'm honored you found it screensaver-worthy. Starwatcher, the war zone is definitely there, just off to the left. I have another photo from that perspective with drying shoes/socks laying out and junk all over. I'm still learning that lesson - I just got lucky in this shot.

All these great camp photos are getting me antsy to get up there.

Hey Uncle Moose,

I love that picture. Do you have it in a larger format. I'd love to make it the backgroup for my computer but its a little small and stretching it will make it distorted.

Thanks

Is that the eastern island campsite on Gaskin?

You've got a great website, by the way. It's cool how you've documented your trips with photographs. Very picturesque wood canoe, too.

Wilderness Paddler--

Yes, this photo was taken on the eastern island campsite on Gaskin Lake (May 2006).

Thanks for the compliments on the website--as for the wooden canoe, there are actually three that appear within my photos and I was lucky enough to have a hand in the construction of two of them (we're working on the 4th one now...)
