We're really grateful that we get to meet so many people in the summertime. They enrich our lives. This week, a couple of our guests certainly enhanced the skills and experiences of Shelby and Daniel.
Stuart Cowles (ClimbMax Climbing) from North Carolina spent some time sharing some of his climbing expertise today on Shovel Point. Each year he travels all the way from Asheville to train climbing instructors--and because he has a love for this area, for the BWCAW, for the Northshore, for Isle Royale.
Stuart is a gentle encouraging teacher and a great guy, and climbing is one of Shelby's favorite things.
Lucky Shelby, lucky us.
Charlie Smith and Tim Ivy traveled from Georgia to fly fish in the Boundary Waters. We really LIKE having them next door in Cabin 3. We're really HOPING that they come back again in August when it is warmer!
Maggie and Daniel learned a few fly fishing tips from the masters---
and Daniel is definitely hooked.
Those guys were catching bass like crazy. Can you tell that they are patient and generous with their flies? They're great guys, and fishing is one of Daniel's favorite things. Lucky Daniel.
