The following is well worth saving and reading, as it is sight not seen very often.

December 13, 2008, 9:38 am:  AMAZING SIGHT!

A large pack of eight wolves were viewed this morning! They were witnessed walking from the east shoreline of the peninsula that River Point is situated on, past "The Point" cabin, the Office/Owners Residence, and the "Log Cabin". Walking across the frozen, snow-covered ice approximately 20 yards away from the shoreline, they moved toward the west arm of the South Kawishiwi River. One wolf was further out on the ice, appearing almost as a sentinel for the rest of the pack. All eight appeared to be very healthy, gray in color, and quite similar in size. One of the wolves had clumps of fur standing straight up, otherwise, no distinctive differences from one wolf to another. Two wolves stopped as they moved in front of the Log Cabin, and appeared to engage in a somewhat playful activity with each other.   

There had been recent deer activity in front yard of River Point Resort the previous day. Weather conditions are hazy with wind coming out of the NE at 3 MPH. 14 degrees F. On the webcam image the wolf pack first appeared on the left-hand side by the large evergreen tree and proceeded across. INCREDIBLE SIGHT!

"A Destination of Rejuvenation"™

You're experiencing a "close encounter" with the awesome peacefulness of a typical day "Up North" at River Point Resort & Outfitting Co.----A Minnesota vacation at its finest!

This is an image looking south from River Point's magnificent, secluded wilderness location on beautiful, undeveloped Birch Lake, the South Kawishiwi River (BWCA entry point #32), and continuing east into the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northern Minnesota. Extending from the shores of the Naturally Superior ™, private peninsula of River Point, you can cruise 20-mile long Birch Lake from this premier Minnesota fishing resort in a motorboat, enjoying the fish-abundant waters, or you can be outfitted for your BWCA canoe trip adventure by River Point Outfitting Co. and retreat to the "paddle-only" waters of the Boundary Waters.

The choice is yours!
