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.
