A few short and steep climbs brought me into the heart of the rocky backcountry of the East Pioneers.

We had set up camp on the shores of the lake at around 9,000 feet, which is the perfect elevation for bitterly cold nights, warm sleeping bags, and some wild dreams.

I want to lead people into new experiences, help them fall in love with this world, and grow as a result.

Color is returning to the world, and all flavors of cotton candy are floating across the sky – a sure sign it is going to be a wonderful day.

Girl Scouts at the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness

We all know that it takes time and energy to cultivate a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts who will work just as tirelessly to protect and expand wilderness in the coming century as Howard Zahniser, Ed Abbey, Mardy Murie, and others did in the last century. It’s in places like the Boundary Waters (or the Bob Marshall or the Selway-Bitterroot or the Lee Metcalf) where that cultivation takes place.
