After several days on Newfound Lake it felt good take down our tent, load the canoe, and move. It was warm, sunny, and relatively calm all day, perfect paddling weather. We paddled down Moose Lake and floated out in the middle recording water quality data. It was a perfect day to be in the Boundary Waters, yet we had Moose Lake, the busiest entry point in the Boundary Waters, all to ourself. During the summer canoes and motorboats are a common sight on Moose and in the winter skiers, snowshoers, and dogsledders often trek up Moose Lake heading into the Wilderness.
As the sun set we unloaded out canoe on a campsite with a panoramic few of the lake. As we cooked dinner a flock of geese landed in the bay across from our campsite. They are all headed South for the winter. We will miss them and will anxiously await their return in the Spring. #wildernessyear #savetheBWCA #sunset #onlyinMN #boundarywaters #bwca #wilderness
