A suprise visit!

Before we bought Mantrap Lodge I worked at Cargill in the cities. My friend Pat Niesen & I worked in the International Tax Dept. She & her husband and two "little boys" would vacation here. The little boys loved to fish and now they are all grown up. This is why I love being a resorter. Kyle (third from the right) & friends, thanks for stopping by.

Saying goodbye to Peter Gabe

The goodbye cake says it all!

Bemidji Airport

all his work and all the fun he brought to Mantrap Lodge.

Peitso Family Pictures of Mantrap!

Thanks again for the great week. We really appreciate you guys and love seeing you every year!

Missing a sweet family dog today.

Our son's dog Laska passed away yesterday. She has had a special place in the Roy family for the past 12 years. When I went to stay with Skylar in the cities, I always felt so safe, because she took such good care of alerting us of what was going on outside. She would meet me in the morning with those sweet brown eyes and a sweet, wet kiss. At night we would help her up the stairs and we could fall asleep, knowing she was on watch. If there is a "doggie heaven", she is there today. Our thoughts are with Peggy, Jared, Sky and Bode, love you all.
