One of my favorite things to do at work is to go back through correspondence with trip clients and customers and read their responses to their trips. Shortly after someone who was brand new to the Boundary Waters returned from their canoe trip in September of 2015 we received this note and these great pictures.
I wanted to take the time to share them with you today. The allure and mystery and adventure of the Boundary Waters never gets old. It appeals to all of us who love and respect the outdoors. It really has been and remains a life changing and magical experience.
Hi Drew and Adam!
I want to thank you and your entire team for helping make our trip to the Boundary Waters an awesome and relaxing adventure. I can’t speak highly enough about how accommodating and helpful you guys were. We planned our trip from Nashville, and you made sure we had everything in order, including rentals, shuttles, switching my permit pick-up spot, and a handful of other things I just wouldn’t have thought about. You guys even had sweet and salty snacks for us after we pulled out of Snowbank (seriously a great touch). I appreciate it very much!
This was my first trip into the BWCA, and honestly, I had no idea what to expect. To put it mildly, I was absolutely blown away by one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. We ended up camping on Disappointment, Ima, and Boot Lakes over a 7 day period. For future reference, the coolest campsite in the world is on an island of Ima Lake. There’s a perfect hammock spot that overlooks a cliff that doubles as a jumping rock for swimming, and the site has the best of view of the sunset and stars at night! I’ve included a few pictures that don’t begin to do it justice!
Thanks again for everything! If we return to Ely, you will certainly be our outfitter.
Sincerely, Jessica Shutt
