Minnesota, canoe

Wow this goes way back to the late 60’s or early 70’s.  My mom and sister Jean went canoeing in the boundary waters between the United States and Canada.       They had a great time and the story will unfold as I reflect back.  The did a lot of canoeing and quite a bit of portage and camping out.  The entered Canadian space and in today’s environment would probably have to go through all of these formalities.

A little portage is good for everyone above.  Portage takes you from one end of the trail river/stream/lake to another.
