"We researched the area we wanted to explore, got maps of the large LaVerendrye Wildlife Preserve, put in at the north edge of this 5,000-square-mile wilderness area, and headed south. We went up big rivers, across lakes large and small, and up little rivers until our way was blocked by the frequent beaver dams. Ray was a more practiced canoeist than I, but we both learned by experience the things wilderness travelers soon know. For instance, if you are camping on a sand beach, don’t ever step across the area where you are cooking food, or soon every bite you take will be gritty. We fished, struggled upwind in the rain, drifted lazily downstream in the sunshine, crept up close to see moose, and played with the local loon, trying to outguess where he would surface next."
