We will make our way into a campsite, set up camp and then spend the next few days there—being silent, responding to questions, paddling to see what nature has to show us.
Words from our teachers…
We are so fortunate to have a wilderness area like the Boundary Waters on our doorstep. Its scale and beauty and wildness are known all over the country and even the world. I (Mary Ellen) know the Boundary Waters as a transformative place—a place of peace, beauty, and life changing experience. I have come tobelieve that Sigurd Olsen was right when he wrote of this area as “the singing wilderness” and why The Wilderness Act (that set aside the Boundary Waters area as wilderness) speaks about the importance of a place where people are visitors, not permanent inhabitants.
