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

On this trip we encountered terrible headwinds. The eagle flew beside us, encouraging us to keep paddling even though waves were coming over the side of the canoe and we felt as though we were going backwards.

The voting for the winning photo has been going on all weekend at Canoecopia. You can get in on the action as well. Visit: http://www.bwcaboard.com/canoecopiajudge.php?page=1

Five random photos from the contest will appear upon each visit. Cast your votes and encourage your friends to do the same. Only one day remains at Canoecopia. Online judging will continue through the end of the month. You may vote once a day.
