Into the Wilderness - Day 302

  Today we entered the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Most of the Border Route Trail is inside the boundary, but not all of it.

Lots of nifty overlooks. Marie's last day with me.

Most of where we walked was along the south side of Gunflint Lake. This shot shows most of the lake.

I really love the blue waters- and it's all Canada on the other side. That's why it's the Border Route. But there were little details to enjoy as well. These are Indian Pipes that are ready to go to seed. The curved pipes lift their heads straight up.

Best tiny find of the day- some pretty slime mold.

We did not find a BWCAW sign where we entered the wilderness. But when we took the spur trail back to the car we found a sign.

More big changes tomorrow. Backpacking begins, so we'll be off line for a few days. Don't get worried.

Miles today: 10.1 that count (plus 1.2 on spurs). Total miles so far: 3547.5.
