Great shot UncleMoose.

Saw this buck itching where the Horse river meets the Basswood river. If you look closely, his little antlers weren't the only thing he was proud of.

Snakecharmer - The colors in your photo entry are great! No Disappointment; Just like being there. Did you use a filter?

Starwatcher,
My son and I went to Disappointment in August. The early mornings were so calm and misty - I took lots of pictures - nice backgrounds. I like to use them for wallpaper on my work pc. The memories of those BWCA mornings relieves the job stress - helps keep me in my "happy place".

I hear you're partial to redheads (CB), plums. Inside joke.

Okay, this isn't the wilderness, but it is within a couple miles. Here is a gorgeous sunset from the east side of Ely.

And I promise, I didn't touch up the color one bit.

I don't know why my caption didn't show up, but this photo was taken on Burntside or Budside Lake (depending on your map) in Quetico.

I remember going through that area before.

You are right, I remember that on John's map it said Budside & on mine it said Burntside.

Sort of like Tin Can Mike, Mike Murphy and Tin Can Mike Murphy Lake! :-)

Just for info, I believe that's a picture of "twinflower," smallest member of the honeysuckle family.

Thanks for the info on that. I didn't know what they were called. They are a neat little flower. I don't know if that's a tiny spider on it or a tiny bug.Whatever it is it's pretty small since the flowers are only about a half inch long.I didn't even see it until I downloaded my pics.

Hey, does my picture open? I can't get it to open.
 
11/26/2006 07:21PM  
That's correct it is a twin flower. They are found in the nothern half of Minnesota, especially in the arrowhead region and the Quetico and BWCA. They are an evergreen plant. Barley your pic opened for me. I like the spider.

Hi Mr. Barley,

You might have a pop-up blocker on if you can't get the picture to pop-up. You usually can easily just turn off pop-blocking for the just a site instead of for all sites.

The winner of the November Photo contest goes to Uncle Moose. I would have loved to have been there.

The bonus hat goes to Moose Plums.

That is an awesome picture. I want to plan a late September trip just for the chance to see something like that. What an experience.
