Here are some shots from our recent tour of the "falls" - Bond Falls and Agate Falls in the Western UP. Temps were about 20 Deg F, even though it looked warmer.

Bond Falls - standing on the ice shelf below the falls with water flowing (raging) under us:

I&#39;ve been doing father &amp; son trips with my kid for 8 straight years. Please enjoy them while he is young. My son is now going to be 19 and his nick name is &#34; MR. NO IT ALL &#34;. I sure miss those sled trips from the ages of 11-16. Seems like we have been buttin heads ever since the age of 17. Boy these teenage years are ruff,but our sled trips are still GREAT FUN <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font>

As Mark Twain once said, &#34;when I was 17, I thought my father was very dumb but by the time I turned 21 I couldn&#39;t believe how much smarter he has gotten in just a few years!&#34; &#40;paraphrasing&#41;.
