    ... br> We watched them getting fed by hand and learned a little bit about their habits and almost extinction due to bounties on their heads which were in place up until the 1950's.

    Spent five nights near Ely in the Boundary Waters Canoe area. The first was in the bunkhouse at the outfitters. Lot's of mosquitoes and tales of it being "worst ever" for them! Turns out once we got going it was manageable. The first day we canoed three times with portages over land three times. This involved carrying all the gear including canoes.
