Canoe Come Out and Play? (25 Photos)

Imagine what it would be like to go back in time and see your state the way it was 200 years ago. There would be no paved roads, no cars, no radios or TVs. No big shopping malls or apartment buildings. But you might get a close-up look at deer, black bears, coyotes, foxes, and great blue herons.

Well, you don’t have to pretend, if you have a canoe. A canoe trip down a river is like stepping back in time. Trees along shore hide most homes and businesses. Everything looks natural, just like it did centuries ago.

Canoes can go where powerboats can’t. They can travel along shallow streams and swampy backwaters. They can glide through the big blue lakes of Minnesota’s famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Skilled canoeists can safely paddle windy lakes and powerful rapids too.
