I really enjoyed your trip report. Sounds like you were able to find a wilderness experience without having to paddle too far to get it. The video was a nice touch as well.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog is too dark to read.
Nice Report, We go a lot around our "home turf" also. The memories are just as embedded in my memory as any bwca trip, and much closer to arrive at for us. Like the bear pics, we don't have any in Nebraska except at the zoo.
