Monday in Ely, Minnesota

Good Morning,

It is rainy in Ely, which is ok. October has been an incredible month, but it has been dry, so we need some moisture. We have two parties still out in the Boundary Waters, which is testimony to the kind of fall we have had. Paddling has been great. Normally our paddling season is a bit iffy in late October, but this year has rewarded us with great weather. Who knows, we might even send some folks out in early November.
For those of you who are Green Bay fans...congrats. The Vikes lost a heart breaker last night; however, it is a long season and we will see what happens. At least Drew's Chicago Bears lost as well.
Earlier this month Diane and I went over to the North Shore and camped at Tettegouche State Park. There are some wonderful hiking trails at the park. Diane and I walked a 6 mile loop one of the days and it was pretty cool.

Diane striding out with purpose. I have to really scramble to keep up with her.

We saw lots of old growth pine, maple, and birch. The roots of this white cedar were pretty cool.

Well...have a good day wherever you are. Be kind and walk gently through your day. We think of all of our clients throughout the year and hope you will come and visit us in Ely soon.
Bert Heep...
