They say a picture is worth a thousand words, I not going to try to come up with the right ones so feel free to find the ones that work best for you.

Magical Skies

When the lakes are calm, they become mirrors, reflecting the real world above, creating magical effects to dazzle the eye and mind.

BWCAW Canoe Trip

Recently I had the opportunity to spend several days in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Although I have been there many times, this trip has to rank as having had the best weather I’ve ever experienced on a canoe trip.  Temps were in the mid-seventies, winds were light or nonexistent, it only rained once for just a brief but intense shower and the lakes were often like a mirror.  Come along as I revisit the route in a series of blog posts and dream of being there in person.

Reflections On A Lake

Water.  It’s life giving, a retreat, a place to float under the sun, a place to fish and so much more.  And, at times, it can be a mirror to reflect land and sky.  Most of my life has been spent living on the shore of a lake, near a creek or river or close enough to be impacted by its presence.  I have seen water in its various forms throughout the seasons.  I am at home near water.  When the surface of water is calm, it gives the viewer a chance to look down into the sky, rather than up, it’s like a trip through the looking glass.
