This is another photo from the town in Minnesota where I grew up. Grand Marais is one of the entry points into to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). When I was growing up, this was where you started. They have since changed the entry point and the last time I was home, the bear and the canoe were in great disrepair. When I was home this summer, I was very happy to see that they have been restored. This was always such a big part of town. The house in the background is the house where I lived growing up. While my family no longer lives in that house, many wonderful memories do.
