Henry David Thoreau once said, "Everyone must believe in something. I believe I'll go canoeing." For an incredible canoeing experience, it is hard to beat the Boundary Waters in Minnesota and adjacent Quetico Park in Canada. Together These 2 million acres of wilderness form one of the best spots on the planet to canoe, camp, fish, watch wildlife, view pre-historic pictographs, immerse yourself in nature and recharge. Join Jim Rahtz a freelance writer and photographer, who's work has won multiple awards; appearing in national publications and websites such as Camping Life, The Boundary Waters Journal, TrailGroove and The Trek. Jim spent his career in park and recreation management in Ohio. Once retired, he followed the advice to "go take a hike" and began backpacking long trails and canoe camping wilderness areas.
