Great story. Love that he wanted you to sit and be quiet and enjoy the quiet.
Beautiful area, esp that portage from ensign to Vera. Should have been lots of wolf sign in that area.


I’m sure your wife is thrilled with the fact that your son loved the trip.


Hope your knuckle heals.

Happy times for you, bfurlow! Great write-up and fantastic pictures tell of a long-awaited trip to BWCA with your son is fulfilled, at last. That nick on your hand healed well, i hope. You wear aging well, friend. You look good. Hope you can both do this again and again. Umm...pack a pair of leather gloves. :)
