Working to save the Boundary Waters Canoe Area


Sometimes you have to experience something to care about it.

I spent 4 days in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of northern Minnesota this November. I gathered with a few other outdoor journalists at the invite of Sportsmen for the Boundary Waters and BackCountry Hunters and Anglers. Both organizations exists to protect wild areas so that outdoorsy folk like myself can freely visit and enjoy them well into the future.

For full details of the trip, visit The Gear Junkie and view the article. In the meantime, enjoy these unpublished photos of the area:
