Minnesota Couple Spends Year In Boundary Waters Wilderness

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — For the past year, Dave and Amy Freeman, of Ely, have been on a journey through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

They just ended their “Year in the Wilderness” a week ago Friday.

They are also writing a book about their experiences camping, canoeing, walking, skiing and snowshoeing through the Boundary Waters.

The Freemans did this because they are concerned about the proposed sulfide-ore copper mining just outside the BWCA.

To learn more about the Freemans’ journey – and a documentary about their experience – go to SavetheBoundaryWaters.org.
