My First Time Winter Camping in the Boundary Water Canoe Area [Video]

Sporting a pair of snowshoes from the ’50s, Ben, Mack and I hiked into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Wilderness for an overnight stay on Wind Lake.

About the Trip

This was my first time in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, proper. (I’ve been to Voyageurs National Park.)

It was an experience I won’t forget and one that I’m very proud of.

Not only was it one of the tougher trips I’ve taken, but it was an excellent learning experience overall — both in terms of learning about the land and what’s included with winter camping in the north woods.

A big thank you to the Caruso bros for your patience and support during this trek into the wild. I’m hoping for a repeat trip this summer.
