In July last year, I stopped along Rock Harbor and hopped out of my canoe at the bottom of a short cliff. A clutch of harebells was growing on a narrow ledge near my landing spot. Finding a spot to land the canoe in places like this can lead to a soaker or two if you don't have the proper water shoes. On this day, I just plunged my boots into the knee-deep water near shore.
WELCOME to Captain Ben Kilpela's blog about Isle Royale National Park. Check out the SLIDE SHOWS linked in the right-hand column.
Also in the right column, beneath the blog archive list, is an overview of Isle Royale that I wrote for copperharbor.org. Copper Harbor, Michigan, is the village from which the Isle Royale Queen IV, the Kilpela family's passenger ferry, sails nearly every day in summer and a couple times a week in May and September.
The photo above is a shot of the Queen IV at Isle Royale. There are dozens of my photos on this blog. I hope you find them enjoyable and beneficial. I have begun putting some current photo work on our Facebook site at:
