When Summer comes to the Northland
I have always enjoyed my hikes and paddling trips on both sides of the U.S./Canada border. Back in the mid 1980s I made my first trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which includes Quetico Provincial Park on the Ontario side. It was about the same time I found a couple of albums by Steve Lehner and Maureen May. Their "Old Home Place" and "Ballad of the Buffalo" LPs are long out of print, but still some of my favorite listening when I'm dreaming of dipping a paddle in a quiet lake.
