FC: Boy Scouts High Adventure Trip | Boundary Waters | Kyle, Liam, and Abram Krause | August, 2010
1: Our last Boy Scout trip together.
3: Time to hit the water. Abram and Kyle paddled together; Liam and Nick Kositzke took the other canoe.
4: Paddling through the lily pads was a little rough.
5: Portaging was a challenge as well. . . it felt good to cool off at the other end. | We got pretty accustomed to this view!
6: It was fun to camp on the islands, but never easy to find a level spot for the tents . . . at least one that wasn't on rocks!
7: Liam and Abram enjoying their oatmeal from their high tech collapsible bowls; . . . Kyle with his old standby metal cup.
8: Don | Nick and Chris
9: Liam, would you hurry up with that canoe!
13: Cliffs! Liam does a trial jump before moving on to loftier heights.
14: Liam taking the plunge as Kyle waits to pick up the pieces. | Abram taking his turn . . . the adults in the group didn't feel the need!
18: More portaging, and another challenge to find a suitable spot to pitch a tent.
21: Life in camp . . . and rewarded with a beautiful sunset.
22: Jeff and Cameron Schifano and Nick Collar were our resident fishermen.
23: The trick was keeping the catch away from . . . | Monster turtles!
24: Nick Collar and Josh Moen navigating the reeds. | Jim and Charlie Collar heading for the next campsite.
27: Everyone's in a good mood after smashing fire-damaged trees with gigantic boulders . . . thanks for the memories, Scoutmaster Zakowski!
29: On our last day, the whole group camped close enough to each other . . . | . . . that we were able to have our last supper together and play some cards.
30: On our last morning, we awoke to the fog rolling across the lake. | As the sun came up, we paddled for home through "the land of sky blue waters."
