Boundary Waters 101

February 12, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Jim Rahtz presents Boundary Waters 101;

Starting in Northern Minnesota and spreading into Canada there are over two million acres of preserved wilderness just waiting for you. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and adjacent Quetico Provincial Park, known collectively as the Boundary Waters, may just be the finest place in the world to canoe, camp, fish, immerse yourself in nature, unplug and recharge. And the best part is that a Boundary Waters trip is one that nearly anyone can experience.

Whether you’re considering taking your first trip or just need a reminder of why you should return, Boundary Waters 101 will provide the information needed to start that planning process. Be warned though, once you learn about this special place, there’s a good chance your bucket list will include a trip to “America’s favorite wilderness.”


Jim Rahtz has spent more years than he cares to admit canoe camping and backpacking, with water often being a focal point of his adventures. He took his first trip to the Boundary Waters in 1988. In addition, Rahtz has received certifications as a kayak and paddleboard instructor.

As a freelance writer and photographer, his work has won multiple awards; appearing in national publications and websites such as The Boundary Waters Journal, Paddler, Camping Life, Canoeing.com and TheTrek.co. He is President of the Outdoor Writers of Ohio and has written five books on the outdoors.
