I love this photo of a young Ernest Hemmingway paddling a canoe. Growing up, he picked up his love for canoeing and camping while he spent his summers at the family cottage on Walloon Lake (not quite in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan but almost there).

Ernest Hemmingway as a boy in a canoe.

Here is another one from when he was a very young boy.
