mooseplums: "Along the border route

Rat Lake?

I think I took a snapshot of that same scene a number of years ago from the stern with my bow paddler in the shot facing away from the camera and looking down the lake. It's such an iconic BWCA scene that for years when his wife saw his framed copy she wondered why he never put a photo in the frame and just let it set there with the "sample" picture that it came with from the store!

For whatever reason, I could not login the website last night to post this pic before the deadline; something regarding website maintenance. Nevertheless, here's my entry for the May photo contest, albeit a late submission.
