Standing on the Edge of the Boundary Waters / by Matt Clysdale

I managed to snap a few photos while in Ely, MN, visiting Jim Brandenburg (see previous post). It was my first glimpse of the North Woods and Boundary Waters territory, and only a glimpse. I didn't even take the quintessential paddle on one of the thousands of lakes. Reason enough to make my way back up there, for a longer stay.
