BWCA Trip Returns

We are home safe from our 4-day, 3-night trip to the Boundary Waters. The two groups, led by Margaret Duffy and Laura Meadows, and Kevin Bolger and Melissa Granick experienced some extreme weather. Margaret and Laura’s group started out strong and made it a few miles in when the weather took hold and the decision was made to stay at a campsite for the night. When the rain and thunder didn’t stop, the group found themselves there for all three nights. The group was thankful that the paddle out was sunny enough to dry all clothes and tents, and they were all cheery to meet the other group paddling by. Kevin and Melissa’s group also experienced some harsh weather (even hail!) but they had the perfect windows to be able to complete a loop and take their canoes out where they originally planned. Overall it was a wonderful experience for everyone, and the girls were all delighted on the last night at the lodge to take canoes and paddle over to Canada’s shores.

Pictures will be on the website shortly!
