Just a bit of spring fever

March 2020

What a beautiful day it is. As I left the house this morning the temperature was 34 degrees, the sun was shining bright and the sky was a beautiful blue. Normally I’m not prone to spring fever but this year might be different.

A bit of spring fever moves me right into summer and the thought of summer takes me to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I first traveled this area shortly after Rod and I were married, and I was hooked. Up until we had kids I went as often as I could and when the kids were out of the house I returned and have been there almost every year since.

There is something so special about the BWCA. The area covers over 1 million acres of rich forests, a variety of wildlife, and unspoiled glacial lakes and rivers. We are so blessed to have this beautiful treasure located just an easy three-hour drive north of us.

This summer I will lead an intergenerational group on a five day/four night trip into the BWCA. We will leave from Mora UMC on Sunday, August 9 at 2 p.m. and return Friday, August 14 mid-afternoon.

This trip is open to those age 13 and older unless accompanied by a parent. You can come as a family or individually. Don’t be concerned about being too old, remember “I’m no spring chicken!”

Participants will travel by canoe and over portages that bring us to our campsites. Our gear and food are provided by an Outfitter, so you only need your toiletries and clothes. The trip cost for adults is reasonable and the youth have money in a fund to cover their cost. A $50 deposit will hold your spot.

If you are interested, and I hope you are, contact me at 952-240-3836.
