::Snapshots from Voyageur's National Park

Our family just returned from a great - three night - camping trip in Voyageur's National Park.  This is a special place for my husband and I, because it is where we met, working at a resort on Crane Lake.

We now have the opportunity, the knowledge of the lakes and the gear to share experiences camping and adventuring in this beautiful place with our children.

Here are some snapshots of our recent adventures:

One of our day trip adventures was to Mica Island where we explored the remnants of an old mica mine and took some time to pick blueberries to add to our oatmeal for our Sunday morning breakfast.

Checking out the overlook to Rainy Lake from the Kettle Falls Dam.  When you are standing at the Kettle Falls overlook and looking toward the falls and dam, you are actually looking south into Canada from the U.S.

The rest of our trip we spent swimming, fishing, relaxing and spending time together as a family.  We hope take more adventures like this!
