About a week before permits are available, our 2020 BWCA plans are set, and I'm looking forward to the 2020 "Name that Lake" game!

So - here goes.

BWCA, looking north

Lots of great guesses so far.

Hmm, okay I'll narrow it down a pinch.

Ely side.

Okay, okay, I fully realize that nobody is likely to guess the lake based off the photo I provided.

Once you come through the opening in the original photo I posted you get here:

While you can’t access this lake directly, you can access it fairly easily from several entry points.

Name that lake, perhaps this should be renamed browse my trip reports and photos to come up with a guess as it could be anywhere, or as my brother in law would say why, why, why?

WHendrix: "Basswood"

You've got it!

The first photo was just coming into Wind Bay from Indiana Lake, the second was a close up of the Island in Wind Bay, and the third was the island shot from further away.

OK, I'll have to take a look at some images and pick something out.
