Back from Up North

Lynne Kiesling

This was the view from our cabin “up north” in the Boundary Waters:


We saw lots of loons, otters, beavers, bald eagles, mergansers, etc. We did not see moose, much to our consternation. And we saw canoeists; we four were pretty much the only kayakers in our area. The landscape was beautiful, and we did lots of good paddling — anywhere from 3 miles/day to 10 miles/day. I also learned how to portage my kayak, which means schlepping your boat and your stuff from lake to lake over land.

A great vacation.

  1. I love it up there. As a kid, we used to rent a houseboat for a week during the summer in Voyageur NP. Beautiful.

  2. I think it might be larger; don’t forget that the entire land mass of the United Kingdom is smaller than the area of Lake Michigan alone. It certainly feels bigger; just getting from Chicago to Ely, MN was an 11-hour drive.

  3. While you were there we were in the Peak District (driving home from Sheffield where Mrs B went to collect a new car). There is a new film version of Pride & Prejudice out, but I don’t think it can match the BBC production.
