After cleaning the dishes and buttoning up camp for the night we slid our canoe back into Lake Agnes for a short paddle. The sun illuminated the clouds in a beautiful patchwork of color and light. We find joy in simple moments like gathering water, setting up camp, preparing food and paddling out into the lake with only the goal of watching the light change.
Multiple scientific studies, including one published recently in the Journal of Hydrology, show a high probability that pollution from proposed sulfide-ore copper mine sites near the edge of the Wilderness would flow into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
This maze of Wilderness waterways is just to precious to risk. It is critical that we all take action. Visit http://ift.tt/1x2erSX to learn more, sign the petition and help protect this national treasure.
