Congratulations to our monthly photo contest winners for 2010.
January 2009 – Waterfalls & Rapids Looking up Canyon Falls, in the “Falls Chain”. You can see a canoe (not ours!) trapped at the top. Don’t know the story behind that but it sure demonstrated the need for watching out for safety to the boys in my crew! BTW, the fishing at the bottom of these falls is always great!

February 2009 – Portages Portage between Ham Lake and Cross Bay Lake just as you enter the BWCAW. I guess a sign pointing out “wilderness” is an oxymoron but at least it’s not the golden arches! Photo taken by: Ritz

Our family has canoed Quetico since early 1960s from Ely to Atikokan to the Gunflint Trail. A big family trip again this year and your accommodations and outfitting were both wonderful. Thank you for your support and advice. We will be back!
