      a couple photos

The four of us had a great canoe trip to Quetico Park in Ontario as usual (9 days starting 5/24). I have been tied up with another project so I still haven't had time to get my photos processed, but here's a teaser from McNiece Lake, our 2nd night. McNiece is famous for it's old growth red and white pines, a tiny, remote fragment of the pine forests that blanketed the whole upper midwest before logging began in the 1800's. There was a massive forest fire on this lake about 10 years ago but the north side escaped damage.

My buddy SB also got some great shots, including this one of me with a nice smallmouth from Yum Yum Lake. Note squashed mosquito on my cheek. That's a Heddon Zara Puppy top water plug in the net. Catching smallmouth on topwater lures at 6:30 AM in a gentle rain on Yum Yum Lake--better than crack (so I've heard).

I think that area burned in 07- Last fall was the first time I paddled the area since the burn, quite a sight. A beautiful area of the park, can't wait for the report.

Outstanding! McNiece is on my list to visit later this summer provided that my shoulder can handle the trip. Great pictures!

I've got a bad shoulder too--Aleve is a wonderful drug--have your Dr. give you a Rx for 500 mg. tabs.

Sorry--haven't had time. If there's anything specific you want to know let me know.
