Trip Introduction:
This would be my sixteenth time in the Boundary Waters/Quetico region. On this trip, there would be three generations of our family; myself, my son Matt, and my nearly nine-year-old grandson James who would be taking his first trip into the Boundary Waters wilderness. We are taking the same route and paddling the same lakes that Matt and I traveled twenty years ago when I took him up here for his first time.
