Aerial Boxwell Repost Round-up

There are still several “repost round-ups” we’d like to do before the year is over. So many themes to explore! For this week though, we thought we’d take to the air!

Over the years, we have posted several aerial images of Boxwell. This week, we combine them all into one big post. Today an aerial photo of camp might not seem like that big a deal what with drones. But for most of Boxwell’s history, getting a good aerial photo was gold. Enjoy!
