Each Trip keeps a group Journal. The following are excerpts from the Trout Lily Journal 6/30, Today we are leaving for St. Croix and we proudly present our trip animal Kashi Whole Grains, she is self-buoyant, indestructible, and a crucial part of our trout lily family. 7/1, Today was one of the best days we have ever had in our lives, everyone slept well and we had a wonderful morning. The lake was calm as we were preparing to head over to a site called the narrows. The funniest part of the day was watching one of our boats going in circles for two or three minutes as their canoeing skills were tested. 7/2, We finally entered the Saint Croix today. Paddling 8.5 miles we reached the dam and the boat launch where we portaged our gear and boats.
