Trip Introduction:
This trip was a little different than other BWCA trips I've experienced....
Part 1 of 3
It was a trip to Ely to pick up my boat.....a Souris River Quetico 16 LeTigre...purchased from
Voyaguers North.....My wife and I took in all the sites and eateries (I think) in Ely...
including a return visit to Chainsaw Sisters on Mudro...and nearly "ran over" a bull moose
in the road on the way to the sisters place. It was awesome.!
We also traveled down Hwy 1 to 61 and then north to the Grand Portage Monument
staying on the Gitchie Gu'mee with friends in the Schroeder area..
enjoying the wonders of autumn in Minnesota!!
