Three days before my entry date, my baseball team qualified for the state tournament. I stayed back while my dad went up to the Boundary Waters with his four brothers and sister-in-law. None of them have been there before so my dad went up the first day to set up camp, and came back to the state tournament and watched my games in Stevens Point, Wi. Our team ended up in the championship game and took second place. Not too shabby. After the game, my dad and I drove up to Grand Marais and slept in the car overnight. Here are some pictures taken during the 5 days they were there and I was gone.
