My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

I've a GB for 7 or 8 years and take it up to the BWCAW 1-2 times every year. There are much lighter axes out but nothing else of that quality.

SW corner on a bench above the Lake. There are a couple of nice campsites in that area but this one had the most privacy. The area was spectacular.

Thanks Al. Although, I copied the whole link and it worked on both of our computers. I'm not real good on a computer and will try to do a better job on our Isle Royale trip.
