Canoe trips and camping in the BWCA - 1986 & 89 Minnesota/Canada - 35mm slides scanned HP S10

Quetico Provincial Park, located west of Thunder Bay on the Canada-U.S. border, is a wilderness retreat of international acclaim for backcountry canoe tripping. Quetico’s tangled network of lakes once formed water routes travelled by Ojibway peoples and fur traders. The Dawson Trail, which winds through the park, was once the main travel route for settlers passing through the Canadian Shield on route to the Prairies. Today, Quetico is primarily the destination of experienced canoeists seeking solitude and rare glimpses of wildlife by cascading waterfalls, glassy lakes, isolated beaches and endless forests.
