This photo was taken on our trip to Alton Lake (via Sawbill) in 2009. It was our first trip as 3 brothers taking some of our kids to the BWCA thereby passing down our love of the area to the next generation. (They did great!) We had some success fishing and were even visited by a crazed loon who was determined to get the walleyes on our stringers over the sides of the canoes. A great trip.

It was while camping on Sawbill Lake I found three butterflies and a moth on a joe pye flower.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
