This website contains pictures taken during John and Pat Dickinsonís Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) Adventure of 2010.† We left home on October 15, 2010 and returned home on October 18th.†† We went in at Entry Point #40, Homer Lake (near Brule Lake), which is North of Lutsen, MN.
This was the shortest trip ever to the BWCA. We entered on Saturday paddling a couple miles into a severe head wind and high waves. That evening the temperature got well below freezing and we awoke to continued high winds. It was too windy to continue on our planned route so we left the tent up and decided to do a short route with just the fishing equipment. We portaged into Whack, Vern Lake, Vern River, East Pipe and returned to our tent in Homer fishing along the way, only one small Northern. The winds were steady all day 15-20 mph gusting to 30. We listened to the weather radio when we got back to the tent site and found conditions were not going to improve and the temperatures were going to drop over the next couple days. About 3 pm on Sunday, we decided to paddle out since the wind and white caps were at our backs. It is always nice to get to the BWCA but truth be told, this was perhaps the least fun of all our trips to the BWCA.
