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.

Insect interacts with flower, photographer interacts with insect, both interacting with and part of nature.

Being One With the Flow

Each moving with a rhythm tied to nature

A lesson for us to observe.

Lower Falls, Yellowstone River

One of the iconic spots in Yellowstone National Park is the Lower Falls.  The views from the various overlooks are fantastic and this makes it a must for the visitor to the park.  All my images were taken from Artist’s Point.  Not only is the visitor rewarded with great views of the the falls, there are also amazing views of the “Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.”  Of course there are so many other sights within the park and it is impossible to see it all in one day.  Just outside the southern boundary of the park is the Grand Tetons, a place I will have to return to when I have more time.

Finding Happiness

Being out in nature is one way I am guaranteed that I can get centered and find my happy place.  And on those days when it seems hard to get to that place, nature is kind enough to provide a bit of assistance.
