A Year in the Wilderness

I was downtown to see a movie at the Zeitgeist and a bicycling crowd gathered around this red canoe. Members of the Sierra Club biked through parts of Duluth with Amy and Dave Freeman, authors of A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters. 

They will be pulling the canoe behind them as they bike the 1,750 miles to Washington D.C. They plan to take their canoe to U.S. senators and congressmen to discuss protecting the Boundary Waters Canoe Areas the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from the threat of proposed copper mining. The invited members of the public to sign the canoe.

They are National Geographic Adventurers of the year.
