What another fantastic summer of trips! I just wanted to express a special thanks for my special "Dad & Grand kids" trip I took in late August this year. I brought my Dad for his first trip to the BWCA this summer, along with my girls. For his first venture into the BWCA, we went on a trip short in length, but filled with an unmeasurable amount of joy. Every time I talk to my Dad, or any of his friends for that matter, his trip to the BWCA is always, always mentioned with great pride and joy.
