    We had the plan for these two weeks for over 5 years. We finally were able to make it happen. Two weeks, go to, and staying in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) of northern Minnesota. Nature, solitude, beauty. That is what we sought, and found in spades.

    My images do not do justice to what we experienced. They are but a glimpse.

    First up, Mackinac Bridge and the U.P.
