Mountain Lake 2021
Like us, these guys had completed the Long Portage out of Rose and continued on into Mountain Lake. From our campsite we watched their 3 canoes reconvene. They were laughing, casually fishing, having a great time. We visited briefly, then they headed down lake looking for a campsite. Their ease and joy with simply being together, on the water, in the BW was infectious. They threw up this little sail and their flotilla passed by us that evening, hopefully to make camp before a storm blew in.

Last night of our trip on Sawbill Lake. Couldn't find an open campsite returning from the Cherokee loop, but a family group was kind enough to wave us down and let us know they were leaving.

The narrows between Frasier and Thomas Lakes, BWCAW. Black & white rendition. Edit: Oops! Spelling error there. It should be "Fraser," of course. The view is looking north from the Thomas side.

Bald Eagle on Pipestone Bay

This guy had a nest just across the way from our camp on the northern part of Pipestone Bay. Caught this image of him flying past our site.
