Photo Essay: The Medicines of Wanderlust

Después de un largo recorrido y aún con días por delante, instalé mi campamento en esta isla entre el Superior National Forest y el Área Natural para Canoas de las Aguas Limítrofes, a solo unas horas de remo de la frontera canadiense. Aquí, en los confines de la naturaleza salvaje, junto un fuego cálido y todo el tiempo del mundo para reflexionar, la vida me hace sentido. El hogar es donde descansa tu corazón. Foto: Tony Czech

I never expected to fall so hard. True wilderness will do that to you. If ever there were a place to push reset on the world, this is it. With more than a million acres of off-the-grid forests, waterfalls, rivers, streams and lakes for adventure, I doubt there are places more pristine and bewilderingly surreal than the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

What happens when there is no more backcountry? To allow the toxic, copper-nickel mines proposed by Twin Metals Minnesota would be unfathomable here.
