Sawbill Lake, Campsite #5. Just outside the Boundary Waters at the Sawbill put-in.
Staci, Rose and Steve
Love my new boat! Wenonah Minnesota II. Kevlar. 42#
Looking forward to getting on the water tomorrow morning with my new boat and paddles!
Rose and Steve with Sun behind.
Staci likes the new paddles too! Carbon fiber. Weighs next to nothing!
Sunset reflected on canoe.

Staci, Brian, Boat, and Jack Daniels. Jack is purely for medicinal purposes and to toast the fishing gods and well....
Finally on the water.
Looking East from our campsite on Cherokee Lake.
Looking North from campsite on Cherokee Lake, towards the portage to Gordon Lake.
Small island just a few yards from our campsite.
Goodmorning Love. Time to wake up!
Seagulls on the waves.
Best camping friends. Steve and Rose.
Staci and Brian. Enjoying a mug. Coffee? Russian tea? Dehydrated Blood Mary? Don't remember.
Happy in the Boundary Waters. Wish we could live here!
Fishing on Cherokee Lake. Creek into Gordon Lake is located at the end of this long, narrow bay.
Amazing how the trees spring up from the rock.
"I'm trying. Can you just make the fish jump in the boat?"
Creek from Cherokee Lake as it enters Gordon Lake.
Rock face on Gordon Lake.
"I got em!"
The haul from a day of fishing on Gordon Lake and Cherokee Lake. Three Northern Pike and one Lake Trout.
Same fish, different dude.
That would be my sexy husband!!
Steve and Rose.
Looking North from the "sunset rock" adjacent to our campsite on Cherokee Lake.
Staci in the sunshine. Relaxing after a day of fishing.
Goofball with funny tan. The Buff saved the scalp, but provides no shade to the face! Back to the camp hat next year.
On "sunset rock".
Wishing we could just stay here...
OK. Staci is better at getting the lighting right with this camera.
Steve and Rose fishing across the deep part of Cherokee Lake. Reportedly 140 feet deep.
Steve and Rose...still trying.
One of my personal favorite pictures from the trip.
Cropped just to see what a 14 MP camera can do.
Final day's catch from Cherokee and Town Lakes.
Big Jim, Sal, Big Josh, and Bubba laid out out on the canoe.
Staci with the fish. Brian only caught Big Jim (left). Staci caught the other 3. We let Sal go, but the others made a tasty dinner!
Giving Big Jim some lovin' before he gets filleted.
Brian and Big Jim.
Lively! For the moment...
Three fish coming to dinner!
