Wind and rain lash at the tent all night long. It’s day seven on your two week BWCAW canoe trip. After a soggy breakfast you pack the gear into the Frost River No.3 pack where it rides snug and dry. The canoes launch onto the Frost River just as the sun breaks through the clouds. A Moose wades into the shallows. Another glorious day in the canoe country.
