Sharing my love of nature with others!

CANOE! As a former Boundary Waters canoe guide, paddling will always be my preferred method of travel.

It’s a toss-up between Eleanor Roosevelt and Julia Child.

On Wolf Lake, floating in a canoe tied to a cedar tree at the base of Mystical Mountain. It’s the most relaxing place to read a good book.
