Trip Introduction:
This was our first trip to the BWCA! We had a blast, learned a lot about teamwork, communication, and each other.
We entered Sawbill Lake on 8/31. The weather was decent and we had fun finding our first portage.

We set up camp on the island site in Burnt Lake for the trip. Over the next couple of days we relaxed, fished, and canoed over to Flame Lake. Here are some pictures:

We didn't have many pictures from the exit trip because of the weather conditions. We fought and rode white capped water on Burnt, Smoke, and Flame Lake. It was super exciting and the following picture tells all.
What a great trip! I'm already planning our next.
