I made a visit to the BWCA this past week. For those of you not familiar with the BWCA, it stands for Boundary Waters Canoe Area. This was my eighth or ninth trip to the BWCA and this year was the first time I brought my son with us on our trip. He will be turning nine years old in a couple of months. I thought perhaps it was a bit too early to bring him up there as this type of camping trip isn't for everyone. There is no electricity, no phone service, no restaurants, nothing except for what we bring into the BWCA for a weeks trip. Portaging canoes, a food pack, our personal packs. Throw in the wilderness, bears, moose, raccoons, wolves, not to mention the weather and what it can bring. Could an eight year old handle it? He survived, I survived and our bonding time together was well worth the trip. I felt it was fitting for today's photo to have a photo of my son fishing, or at least his silhouette.
