Boundary Waters

a BWCAW lake reflection shot. The lake is called Ima Lake. I wanted to answer Dusty Lens of the North Metro Minneapolis Photo Blog, his question was what lakes do we travel to. We usually enter the BWCAW around the city of Ely. The access lake we enter is Snowbank, then into Disappointment Lake. Once through these two lakes, which are the longest two lakes we have to paddle, the rest are fairly small. Adventure, Jitterbug, Cantyman, Asaub, Jordan, and we either end up on Ima or Alworth Lake. We like to make a base camp and then take day trips from there. We like to stay on Ima to fish for Lake Trout, plus we caught some Northern Pike in the range of 40-43 inches on this lake in the past. It's lowest point is 140 feet and typically has a 40 foot average depth about 20 feet from shore.

If you flipped that upside down, do you think anyone would notice. The lake looks inviting.

Beautiful photo! A rare scene, glass smotth lakes.

My regret is not having a digital camera earlier for BWCA trips. We never been into the lakes you mention, Basswood (Pipestone Bay) was our favorite as was Ensign. Made the long trek to Knife Lake. Wow, paddle trolling for lake trout was a lot of fun!

I've only brought a digital into the BWCA for the past three years. I was too afraid to damage the camera if I brought my good camera, so I opted for the disposables.
