My oldest son, Carl, is working as an outfitter / guide in the BWCA (Boundary Waters Canoe Area). This wilderness area adjoins the Canadian border, and can only be reached by canoe (no roads).
Like his father, Carl blogs. He just posted about a canoe trip he took with another guide. Little did Carl know that his Dad and Mom took the almost identical trip 26 years ago. However, the coolest fact is that my son camped on the same lake where Molly first let me know that she was pregnant, and Carl would be born that December.
The Circle of Life. I've now let Carl know the history of Crooked Lake. Here is his blog post and trip report. The image given below is from Carl's trip ... sunrise over Crooked Lake!
