This is a view from Rose Lake. I love the photo not for its esthetic quality but more for the memory of the first trip I took with my sons.

Well, the artistic quality isn't half bad either! I think it is beautiful and it makes me want to be there.

Was that down in the narrows to the east on the Canadian side? Good spot to see moose. Seen a cow and a calf swim across the lake at that location.

Love that lake for it being like Top of the World where it is in the watershed,just can't catch anything out of it tho,winter or summer.

Was there once April 1 one year winter fishing and did have 6 adult wolves run by us on the ice. I seen them come out of a draw onto the ice. It was a moment I will always cherish.

Hey Joe, how did that paddle do for you? I picked one up just like it. I wanted to get a wood paddle so I could filet dinner on it. Just wondering how it held up for you.

It worked really well as a bow paddle since it has such a wide south end (so to speak!). It will probably be my extra paddle now since both Grandpa and I got two wooden beavertails.
