12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Autumn Morning in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

The BWCAW is the most popular wilderness destination in the country. I was blessed to live on the border for 8 years. Exploring the wilds many, many times, there are countless beautiful moments. This little island emerged from the morning mists on a frozen early Autumn morning.
