If you liked canoeing the Russian River..... Troop 57 is putting together a crew this summer to explore the waters of Northern Tier, the original High Adventure program in BSA, since 1923. Many moons ago, T57's last Northern Tier crew ventured north from Atikokan into Crown Lands and returned with tales of adventure, and an experience of a lifetime. This summer, we'll follow in the footsteps of the fur traders and explore south from Atikokan: Quetico Provincial Park --- described as a gorgeous and unspoiled wilderness, an ancient land of majestic granite cliffs, spectacular waterfalls, lush forests and interconnected lakes with an international reputation for unparalleled wilderness canoeing. We’ll experience awesome fishing, pictographs, the cry of the loon, hoots of barred owl, the majesty of bald eagles and osprey, and almost guaranteed nightly moose sightings, as well as otter, beaver, deer. Border canoe crossing from Canada to US may be possible.
