Trip Introduction:

A springtime solo canoe trip in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from the Little Indian Sioux (LIS) River North entry point.

This is an experimental video trip journal presented as six individual videos, one for each day. If you experience problems with the primary "Vimeo" video links, you can try the alternate "YouTube" links that are also included.

I apologize in advance if these videos don't play well for everyone. They are originally in HD format and may require a lot of internet bandwidth. Lower resolution versions can be selected in the control bar associated with each video if internet speed is a problem.
