Quiet Time

Some places are really busy over the 4th of July but the BWCA isn’t one of them.  People have their holiday traditions that include parades and fireworks, neither of which you will find at the end of the Gunflint Trail.  The few days before and after the 4th are quiet enough that we are usually able to get out for a paddle of our own.  The kids enjoy camping, canoeing and fishing so we’ll head out into the woods for a couple of nights of R & R.  It’s a great time to enjoy the solitude of the wilderness and the show nature puts on each and every day for us.
