Trip Introduction:
My husband and I took our first BWCA trip last year through this same entry point. My parents have never done this sort of thing and wanted to try it, so we chose the same entry point since we kinda knew our way around here.
Day 1 of 5
Saturday, June 07, 2008 It's 4:00 in the afternoon by the time we finally arrive in Ely. We have decided to make a short stop to the North American Bear Center before continuing on to the outfitters. My parents have decided to join us this year and we thought they might enjoy this stop. Then, off to Voyageur North. Once again John and Lynn and their crew did a wonderful job of helping us get ready for our trip! We decided to stay in one of their bunkhouses this year which was very convenient. After getting everything settled and ready for our morning departure we headed downtown to visit a few shops then enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Ely Steakhouse.
