This morning, our first trip group of the week drove to Ely, MN (a 4 hour drive) and dropped their canoes in at Moose Lake for our Voyageurs Highway 1 trip. From here they will paddle through Knife River and Ottertrack, arriving back at Camp on Friday. They will follow the Canadian border the entire way, being able to stand in both the US and Canada on several occasions. They will see many amazing sights on the way, not least the Isle of the Pines, where Dorothy Molter (AKA The Root Beer Lady) used to live. As well as the Ribbon Rock, a rock with a natural red stripe running through the middle of it. Along the way they will paddle the same waters and use the same portages as the Voyageurs did more than 200 years ago.
