After hugs and introductions we all walked, skied, and dogsledded back to our campsite for lunch. Tina, Tank, and Acorn pulled Land Tawney and most of the supplies back to camp. Land is the CEO of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers and it has been a privilege having him camp with us and introduce him to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Backcountry Hunters and Anglers is a member of the @sportsmenbwca Coalition, which is a group organizations working to protect the Wilderness from Twin Metals and other sulfide-ore copper mines that are being proposed along the southern edge of the Wilderness.
In the afternoon most of our visitors had to head home. The dogs were raring to go so we decided to add a few additional passengers to Land’s dogsled. Pretty soon the dogs were trotting across the lake hauling Becky, Hellen, Land, and a giant backpack! The extra weight didn’t faze the dogs at all!
