BWCAW route map

I just got back from a Boundary Waters canoe trip with three buddies, all of whom I’ve known since elementary school. Faced with some challenging weather (cold and wet, primarily) we opted to spend most of our days paddling and portaging.

Click on the image below to see a large map of our route. Photos by the end of the week.

There is a wonderful poem about Levon Helm in this week’s New Yorker.
