1974 Hiking - One of the Shelters We Stayed In

1974 - One Week Backpacking Trip on Isle Royale

Back in '74 I had the pleasure of traveling with 20+ high school students as a chaperone for six weeks across Canada and the US and spent one week on Isle Royale.

Re: Life memories...

Maybe! I remember getting our drinking water straight out of Lake Superior that night; it was so clean!

Sometimes,

I wish time would stand still so we could count the memories.

Re: Sometimes,

Sounds like a song's coming on Larry! But you're right; it's looking back as I scan the old slides and pictures that I realize how many great places I've been!

I had a green canteen

just like the one in this photo. It reminds me of the backpacking trips my Dad took me on during that era. In 1974 I spent a week in the Yellowstone backcountry at Heart Lake. Thanks for triggering the memories!

Re: I had a green canteen

You're welcome! I kept that plastic canteen around for many years and finally threw it out a couple of years ago - couldn't get that old musty smell out no matter what.

Glad to reconnect those neurons for you!

Ugh, does this reply belong in the 'beer thread' to protect the innocent? LOL!
