Isle Royale Reflection
"Time may have idealized my memories of being on Isle Royale. After all, I fell out of our canoe more than once, camera in hand, as I tried to deposit my fellow artist-in-residence on the small wharf down the hill from our cabin. Among other things, hauling water up from the lake to the cabin and taking outside showers while being swarmed by big black stinging flies made the experience somewhat arduous for us city folk!
