Along with our standard resupply items they brought a mountain of fresh fruits and veggies, including our first veggies of the season from the Northern Delicious CSA in Babbitt. As we visited with our new guests and sorted through the food and equipment that they hauled in with them an amazing sandwich buffet unfolded on the log benches and Ann passed around the most delicious chocolate cookies for everyone to sample with an extra bag for us to savor.
We are so thankful for all the folks who take the time to visit us out here in the Wilderness. It is hard for us to describe how important their visits are, but your visits remind us that we are part of something so much greater.
That night we feasted on FRESH food. We sandwiched juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, perfectly ripe avocados, sprouts, goat cheese, and basil between thick slices of soft bread and capped off dinner with a fresh mango! With the 1.5 mile Lujenida Portage ahead of us and variety of correspondence to catch up on we decided to stay an extra day on Alton Lake. We stayed busy writing, backing up image and video files, and taking care of a variety of tasks that can generally be described as “office work”. We just have an unusual office.
This place is just too precious to risk. The sulfide-ore copper mines being proposed along the edge of the Wilderness threaten this national treasure and now is the time to take action.
