ULC Youth Canoe the Boundary Waters

Arthur Nicole CanoeYep.  At Luther house at 6:30 AM, on the road by 7:15 our adventure had begun.

We Canoed to our campsite, and made hobo dinners.

Camp LifeFriday Morning we woke up and it started to rain, so we all crawled back into the “girls” tent and played phase 10.  In the afternoon, the rain stopped and we were able to picnic on a island – and we were scolded by a loon, evidently the loon had a nest somewhere on the island.

We canoed back to the campsite and just made it back to the tent and it started to downpour.

We played phase 10 again.  Pastor dominated the game.

Lunch on RockThe next day we canoed and portaged to a river.  We climbed up a huge rock and picniced on top of it.

We canoed on to a big lake and fished the afternoon away.  Kari Walker of Minneapolis caught a walleye and we had it for supper along with WONDERFUL salmon cakes courtesy of Arthur.

Sunday we had breakfast and matins and packed up camp and canoed out to the boat landing where we met professional photographers who took a group photo with Andrew Kind’s camera.

We packed the gear onto the trailer, had lunch and ice cream in Duluth, then headed back to the cities.

Special thanks to Arthur for arranging the trip and cooking, to Pastor for matins and compline, to Kari Walker for all the treats and Salmon, to Nicole for crocheting dishcloths for the trip, for Andrew for photographing our trip, and to Rachel for keeping our water bottles filled.
