Here are some pictures from our canoe-camping trip last weekend. I've done plenty of car camping in my life, but I had never done anything like this before. We had to bring everything we needed to survive for 4 days in our backpacks. Water is too heavy to carry, so we had to boil lake water to drink. At night, we had to hang our food from trees to deter the bears. It was an incredible experience to say the least! Being out in the pristine wilderness is humbling and nourishing on a soul level. I honestly miss it already (although I'm happy to no longer have to wash my hair in cold lake water!).
What about you... are you an "outdoorsy" person, or does this kind of thing sound like torture to you?!
