Our second trip of the week headed out on the trail today. This group will be continuing our Voyageurs Highway by completing the 2nd section. They will drop in at Gunflint Lake and paddle along the U.S. - Canada border through South Lake, Rose Lake and Duncan Lake. Along the way they will cross the Laurentian Divide (which separates the watersheds of the Atlantic and Arctic oceans) at the Height of Land Portage. This is a famous portage at which the Voyageurs would perform a 'mock' baptism (no religious connotation); our group will perform a similar ceremony here to truly become Voyageurs. It is an amazing trip, with (in my opinion) some of the most beautiful areas in the entire BWCA.
