Returning to the Boundary Waters after many years absence had been a bucket list item of mine. Went on a join-on trip starting with 7 strangers and a guide ending with 8 new friends. The adventure that Peta laid out challenged us and in doing so left me with an incredible sense of accomplishment and gratitude for the full experience of the wonder of the Boundary Waters. Food was delicious and plentiful. Our guide Anna was experienced, knowledgeable and always calm, inspiring confidence in her and in ourselves. Trip better than I hoped!
