Trip Introduction:
Back Again To Vera


So a little background. All my kids were born in Costa Rica, and we moved to MN in April 2015. I had my 2 girls aged 15 and 10 in a canoe in the BWCA May 16th 2015. We had rain, a little snow and some gorgeous sunny days. Fishing was not bad. This trip, the next year, I only had my 11 year old daughter with me as her older sister felt one trip was enough. Day 1 is a water taxi through Moose and Newfoundland and then we are off into Ensign, a decent portage into Vera and a great campsite. Day 2, 3 and 4 are spent fishing Vera and neighboring lakes with some good fish caught. Weather was incredible. Some adventures were had and we loved our trip.
