Day 163: Star Filled Night on Basswood Lake

The ice is booming all around our tent. That and the clear, star-filled night signal the temperature is dropping. Gazing up at the moonless sky provided the perfect end to a warm, sunny day spent traveling across Basswood Lake. We stopped for lunch in the middle of the lake and munched on smoked salmon, cheese, and crackers. I love March in the Boundary Waters. The sun is powerful and the days are long. A perfect crust allows us to cruise across the lakes with ease.
