Hikes in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) have a feeling about them that is difficult to get anywhere else in northeastern Country. Once I step across that boundary, it is like entering another world. Something in the air seems to awaken and heighten the senses. The strangely mysterious and powerful nature of the BWCAW transmits a charge that becomes an electric current running up and down my spine. Perhaps it’s nothing more than a trick of the mind playing off our myths about wilderness, but the feeling is addicting, drawing me back time and time again.
