S: 2011 "BOW" BWCA Trip

BC: Until next time.....

FC: The Great Outdoors | "Becoming an Outdoor Woman" BWCA Trip June 16-19, 2011

1: CANOEING | Our navigation system! | The Crew: Jean Bergren Kay Okey Marsha Carolyn Polm Terry Swanson

2: Almost there | "under the kevlar" | Nice portage trail | Carrying a Kevlar was a new (and great) experience! We paddled to our first portage and conquered it like pros!

3: Teamwork | I love the views | Our journey began at Lake One. This was our first portage.

4: Loading up the canoes after the first portage. The second portage is a short paddle to the end of this pond.

5: Another portage conquered!

7: Finding a Campsite is not always easy | Getting a late start on the water, we paddled Lakes One, Two and Three while looking for a campsite. A forest fire had a few sites closed so we paddled on. We decided to try portaging into Horseshoe in hopes of finding a site, but first we stopped to make dinner as we were all very hungry! We found a site on Horsehoe

9: Home Sweet Home! We found our campsite on Horseshoe and made it our home for a few days.

10: Carolyn made us a wonderful birch trail to the lat so we would not make a wrong turn when nature called LOL

11: B

13: The views of Nature

14: Enjoying time at camp - making new friends and enjoying nature

16: Our friendly visitor. After dive-bombing us he landed in the water then came for a wander around camp

17: Kay gave fishing a try at camp. While she caught no fish, she was great entertainment when she cast her line and the end of her pole went flying!

19: Our days were filled with good food, great weather, new friendships and Nature!

22: It wouldn't be a Boundary Waters trip without rain! | We started as women who did not know each other. We ended with friendships that will last a lifetime
