We enjoyed several wonderful days with our friends, Eric and Jessa Frost, and were sad to say goodbye. One of the highlights was camping on Rose Lake. Our campsite was lined with majestic white pines and had a commanding view of the undulating hills and cliffs to the east. We spent several hours exploring the moss-covered rocks and misty recesses of the creek that plummets from Duncan Lake down to Rose along the Stairway Portage. After marveling at the falls and rushing water, we followed the Border Route Trail to an overlook high above Rose Lake and sat silently, feeling the breeze on our faces.
