Stray Observations

  • The one constant is that the region is sparsely populated.
  • Canoes are the popular mode of transportation.
  • The most visited ‘wilderness’ in the USA.
  • The combined region of the BWCAW, Superior National Forest, Voyageurs National Park, and Ontario’s Quetico and La Verendrye Provincial Parks make up a large area of contiguous wilderness lakes and forests called the “Quetico-Superior country”, or simply the Boundary Waters. Lake Superior lies to the south and east of the Boundary Waters. (Wikipedia)
