Trip Introduction:
Started planning this trip as a two man journey in August of 2007. Neither of us had been to the Boundary Waters before however we had lots of canoeing and camping experience from back in our Boy Scout days. Trip expanded to three people in November when we started talking about where to go and what to see. Around this time the trip focus changed slightly from just paddling and camping to include fishing as well.
Day 1 of 9
Saturday, August 9, 2008

The day before we leave for the Gunflint. This day had originally been our desired day for driving until a friend decided to have a sunrise wedding that day. The wedding could have worked fine with our plans to travel on Saturday had one of our trip partners not been brewing 60 gallons of beer for the reception....

Reception was nice and the beer was tasty. Left early, however, so I could spend the night at Joe's house and get the car packed up and ready for a 5AM departure.

Here's a picture just after sunrise on Lake Michigan of the newlyweds, Joe & Nikki Tyson.
