DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Federal officials say they are starting over on accepting reservation for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of northeastern Minnesota because of technical issues.

Forest Service officials say only a small number of people were able to receive access to apply for permits, so officials are cancelling reservations that have been processed and are issuing refunds.
