BWCAWAll I know is that there are no roads, and no cars here. There is no town or gasoline station. Even electricity and phone service. But there is one thing in this place has, and that is water. If you don’t see it, well I guess maybe you’re in the woods.

The boundary waters canoe area wilderness has a very beautiful lakes and streams where you can go and canoe with your family and friends, even your office mates if you are in a getaway and want to do something different. This canoe area is dotted with different islands. I have learned when my friends and I traveled to Minnesota is that the canoe area wilderness is the most visited wilderness in the country, America. Also, when the tourist guide told us that the great glaciers carved the physical features of what is known today, the boundary waters canoe area wilderness or BWCAW by scraping and gouging rocks.BWCAW Fishing They also left behind the lakes and streams that intercepted the islands, and it is surrounded by rugged cliffs, gentle hills, sandy beach and canyon walls. When we were exploring the island, we’ve learned that BWCAW provides habitat to many wild species that is present in their islands including red fox, weasel, black bear, moose, beaver, bats, different kind of frogs, red squirrel and chipmunk as I remember. This place is a major area of cultural and religious significance for the Indians population back in the early days.

BWCAW CampingAs we explore the islands, we have learned that the local Ojibwe or Chippewa tribe still lives that way. We met Paul and Sue Schurke, and they have spent most of their lives getting away from this civilization. When I look at them together, all I can think is that most of the day when they appear to lose their thoughts for a while, I think it is most like likely that they are daydreaming another adventure. We also met the owner of one of the lodge on Sand Point and the most interesting part is that he owned it for 39 years. When we get there, all we can see was water, stone and wood. We saw a hand prints and depiction of a large moose and I think it’s a hundred years old by now. The Ojibwe artist made them by mixing a sturgeon oil and by this mixture it can last up to thousand years. Cool, right? Even though the area is heavily trafficked by humans, it is still gives a thrilling population of wilderness including the stable population of the animals and animals within the area’s waters.
