Whoa!!!! What a fantastic trip report. Isn't it amazing how the BWCA can remove the distractions around us and give us time to pray and focus? I could see the first trip fire in your words. And that five pound northern wasn't too bad either. What a monster!


I'm thinking you might like this quote from Jonathan Edwards. Edwards perceived God’s presence in the natural world, and made it his habit to walk in “a retired place…for divine contemplation and prayer." These contemplations were often accompanied by an “inner sweetness…a calm, sweet abstraction of soul from all the concerns of this world, and a kind of vision, or fixed ideas and imaginations, of being alone in the mountains, or some solitary wilderness, far from all mankind, sweetly conversing with Christ, and wrapt and swallowed up in God."


That's what the BWCA does for me.

Great report. We were in that area last August and also noticed the big difference in water color between Boot/Fairy and Gun.

I really enjoyed the trip report and pictures on your blog, which brought back memories of my trip through Mudro, Fourtown, Boot, Fairy, Gun, and Moosecamp. A very pretty area - popular for a reason.


It sounds like your first trip, although maybe not exactly as you imagined it, nonetheless lived up to your expectations. You were well prepared thanks to all your research and planning, and were able to enjoy it despite conditions that might have left other first timers struggling.


I'm glad you all had a good first trip. And thanks for taking me back to one of my earlier trips.

I noticed in several photos you showed the BioLite stove. What were your thoughts about how it worked? Did you recharge any items using it?


Thanks for sharing this report, by the way!

Great trip report and beautiful pics. As an aside my favorite Hillsong tune is "From the Inside Out."

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the BioLite stove! We thought it worked pretty slick. There were always small twigs laying around - and yes you do have to constantly feed the thing, but HELLO - no fuel to carry in?!!


Boiled water in about 6 minutes or so, and we did charge the GoPro and my iPhone 6 lasted me from a Saturday to a Thursday. We charged the iPhone 6 as well, but maybe would bring it from a 34% to a 52% - but hey it lasted me the whole trip - because that's what i shot all of my photos on (b/c I didn't want to accidently ruin my DSLR - with a wedding to shoot next weekend! :/


Furthermore once you're done cooking it cools down super fast, so you can put it right in the stuff sack with no worries.


And - on those super rainy days I'm not going to say we didn't sit under the tarp and have a BioLite "campfire" to warm our chilly hands over since our regular campfire wouldn't light! HAHA!


All in all - I give it 5 stars. It rocks.

Very nice, Lindsey! I really enjoyed watching it. I wish I had done a better job of chronicling my earlier trips.
