I will put one on/up for treeplanter, since he is without other photos.

A view from a great camp.

Those 2 small islands remind me of Lake Whittlesey.

Midwest Ed, Lake Whittesley it is!

I've walked up the portage from Chippewa harbor to Lake Whiitesley many years back, but have never actually paddled on the lake. Someday.

The photo I last posted was not Whittlesey!

But, close. Another from there.

Since we had two pictures up a once, we have two winners. Either Midwest Ed or Ingo can go next.

Somebody suggested branching out to other locations besides campgrounds. That's a good idea.

Damn, that's a beautiful photo. No matter where it is, I want to go there.

Deductive guess.
Duncan Bay Narrows.

No, not Birch, or either Duncan. It's a sunrise.
