Big Moose Lake – BWCA Spring 2017

Big Moose Lake - BWCA Spring 2017

In June 2017 we went on a shorter-than-usual BWCA trip, on account of an incoming little one back home. Myself, Lucille, my brother-in-law, and two friends went to Big Moose Lake by way of Moose River South on a 4 night trip. We saw lots of heavy rain, leaving us to quite a few games of Magic the Gathering. On the upside, we got to see many incredible rainbows, including a full end-to-end double rainbow out over the water. I didn't take the camera out too often on account of the incessant rain Here are some photos from the trip:

The long windy dirt road from Ely to the entry point.

Now where the hell are we? What's with all the rain?

There was a pot of gold behind that rock. We paddled out to claim it and split the loot 5 ways.
