The Great Minnesota Bucket List: Woodsy Weekends
Load up on bug spray, bait, and bungee cords, lash the canoe to the car roof, and head into the wild.
Test Your Boundaries
When National Geographic Traveler
included the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness
in its “50 Places of a Lifetime” issue, we couldn’t help but smile smugly. As part of our birthright, we’ve inherited 1.1 million acres of pure wilderness and more than 1,000 pristine lakes, adjacent to another million-plus acres on the Canadian side.
For minimum exposure to tourists and mosquitoes, and maximum exposure to fish, visit between mid-August and September. Be sure to enlist a local outfitter, who can help you plan your trip, secure permits, arrange transportation, and provide all the requisite niceties and necessities.
