I’ve had the good fortune of spending formative years in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area, or God’s Country as I like to call it. Lakes and portage trails are its highway where you drink the water you paddle in, reminiscing the life of the voyageur. We should not underestimate or take for granted the importance of good the clean water our state happens to be blessed with, which I am grateful for.
