“The Boundary Waters is one of the fifty places in the world everyone should visit in their lifetime.” --National Geographic Traveler Magazine
Back when my camping clothes fit more loosely, I measured the success of a canoe outing in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) by the mileage covered. The more miles paddled in a day somehow added to the value of the trip.
That was pre-kid thinking. Canoeing with youngsters in the BWCA is about quality, not quantity.
