This shot was taken deep in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area on a trip Heather and I made back in ’05. It was the first time I tried doing the trip with a DSLR, so I spent the week toting a good-sized Pelican Case everywhere we went. This picture was taken on Seahorse Lake on a day trip with the Tufvanders. We had just portaged in from Gillis Lake and this was the sight that greeted me. In all of my trips to the BWCA – it was the first time to this under-traveled corner. It’s a pretty swampy lake that isn’t really on the way to anything – so most people skip it.
