Before and after effects of mining and water pollution. #savethebwca #stopthemining
Sulfide mining has not yet been practiced in the BWCA but there are plans to do so. The effects would be devastating. #stopthemining #savethebwca #boundrywaters #clearwater
When water and air mixes with the waste from iron mining, rust is produced. BUT when the same process happens with sulfide mining, sulfuric acid is created. This acid dissolves rock and leaches out toxic heavy metals and it is referred to as “Acid Mine Drainage” #savethebwca #waterpollution #redwater #actnow #stopthemining

The acid that comes from sulfide mining is very similar to battery acid. #deadly #savethebwca

1,000 acres of wetlands are being excavated for mining, also when mining pulls water from these areas it drys them up. #wetlands #cleanthewater #savethebwca
The post mined rock ends up looking like this. It is destroying habitats and forests. #stopthemadness #savethebwca
These beautiful sites are could be damaged and destroyed. Clear waters turn murky. Habits get destroyed. #savethebwca #stopthemadness

Over the years people have depended on having wild rice crops, since the water has began to get more and more polluted, the crops are getting destroyed. #stoppolluting #savethebwca #wildrice

When you pollute the fresh water, animals habitats could be ruined by the toxins that come from sulfide mining. #savethebwca #savetheanimals #stopthepollution #savetheboundarywaters
Compared with iron and taconite ore, disturbing sulfide rock can produce more acidic discharge, more sulfate, and much more serious, permanently toxic pollution. #pollutionfree #toxic #cleanwater #sulfidemining #savethebwca #fresh
Living at the tip of the big lake has it perks. Encouraging outdoor sustainability and engaging people to get outside, smell the air, pause, reconnect, take off your shoes  and feel the warmth of a rock under your feet, watch a sunrise, take photos of a bird, climb a tree, turn off your phone, go trail running, hike to the lookout, paddle to the hidden lake, live everyday to the fullest and protect these lands we love so much.

Last Thursday I had a beautiful, fall ride to @northerncoffeeworks for a @benweavermusic show to benefit the Boundary Waters! I only took this one shot because I was too busy being inspired by the eloquent and powerful words of Ben Weaver. The Boundary Waters are irreplaceable and the health of that area is a complicated issue. 
Please reach out to @savethebwca and @sportsmenbwca for more information and volunteer opportunities.

I'm a  s l o w  person. I enjoy life most when I can sink into each moment--being fully present, attuned to its offerings and meaning. Rushing and busyness throw me off balance, leaving me cranky and exhausted. This weekend I'm pushing through one last out-of-town trip (for the happiest of occasions--a best friend's wedding!) to end a four month stressful blur of going-going-goings. This season, rather than dreading the growing darkness I've welcomed the waning daylight as a harbinger of slower days ahead. #cantwaitforcozy #butfornowpartypants

There's so much more than water in the Boundary Waters!  The northern forest has pine, fir, spruce, and birch trees.  Edge communities like beaver ponds support deer, moose, black bears, and even grey wolves.  Fish like walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, lake trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, and brown trout live in the thousands of crystal clear lakes.  While iron mines are a longstanding Minnesota industry, copper sulfide mining is much more dangerous to land and people and has not been done.  Antofagasta, the Chilean conglomerate behind Twin Metals, has been fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for toxic contamination of its mines in Chile.  Farmers there lost their water supply in an example "of how responsible companies should not operate," according to OxFam America.

Yesterday, Rep. Tom Emmer officially introduced a terrible bill that singles out Minnesota as being unworthy of the fundamental environmental protections afforded to the rest of the country and directly puts our public lands at risk. This unprecedented bill would eliminate at least 5 bedrock conservation laws that have been in place for nearly 50 years, overturn the will of Minnesotans and allow a foreign mining company with a terrible history of environmental violations to build dangerous sulfide-ore copper mines on the edge of the Boundary Waters watershed.

Bobby here for #dayofthegirl. Rowan and I have a special connection. When I'm done from work she crawls as fast as she can to me and if I don't scoop her up right away she cries her eyes out. When nothing else can soothe her, usually just carrying her in my arms calms her. I'm excited to help her grow and learn about all things in the years to come.
-
One of the biggest influences of my life has been the Boy Scouts. Not only did the program instill my love of nature and teach me the skills I use every day to lead at work and every weekend to keep my family safe hiking and camping. But, it also connected me with the best friends anyone could ever know, and it also introduced me to my wonderful wife. We met while working at Tomahawk Scout Reservation in Wisconsin. Simply put, without the Scouts, Jack and Rowan wouldn't even be here.
-
That's why I was so excited to hear today that the Scouts will be allowing girls to join their younger kid program the Cub Scouts starting next year. They'll also be putting together a way for women to earn the rank of Eagle Scout so Rowan can have the same opportunities I had.

I still have a hard time believing that there is a proposal for a sulfide-ore copper mine within the Boundary Waters watershed. It seems like common sense that this is an absolutely horrible idea. Pollution from this mine will make its way into the BWCA watershed and pollute it for 100s of years to come. Why risk permanent damage to 1.1 million acres of pristine water and woodlands. 
Please do your part and visit @savethebwca , visit their website www.savetheboundarywaters.org and sign their petition to help permanently protect this wild place. 
If you would like to hear more about this issue, I highly recommend listening to the latest podcast from @the_dirtbag_diaries , titled Endangered Spaces -- Boundary Waters. All of their episodes are incredibly but I can't recommend that one enough. .

The Boundary Waters is made of thousands of interconnected lakes.  Glaciers scraped across granite bedrock 10,000 years ago, leaving granite boulders, cliffs, and islands.  Water here is pristine; the area was first protected in 1926.  The US Forest Service and Department of the Interior are currently studying whether to allow the Chilean Antofagasta mining corporation to proceed with copper sulfide mining within the Boundary Waters watershed, in the Superior National Forest.  This national forest is public land, and it borders the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Copper sulfide mining produces more toxic tailings and runoff than iron ore mining, and this area's water communicates with the protected Boundary Waters, since they're in the same watershed.

Canoeing, camping, fishing, outdoor yoga, fires, and getting down with nature. Who’d be in for a retreat to the Boundary Waters?! Brewing up some ideas for next summer.

More than 250,000 people visit the Boundary Waters every year.  Its 1.1 million acres have more than 1,200 miles of canoe & kayak routes, 230 miles of hiking trails, and 2,000 campsites.  The water is pristine, because the lakes were formed from granite by glaciers and have been carefully protected since 1964.  Now, a copper sulfide mine is trying to open on the southwest border of the Boundary Waters in Superior National Forest.  Toxic mine tailings would be transported through the watershed, and mine waste would flow into the interconnected lakes and streams.  Copper sulfide mines are much more toxic than lead mines and have never been allowed in Minnesota.

I spent all weekend taking pictures of this damn rock until I was finally happy with one, but I’m glad I kept trying because this is one of my favorite shots I’ve taken this Summer!  I’m infatuated with the way the sky explodes with color once you get far enough away from all the light pollution.

There were moments when we could not tell which way was up or down and we lost all sense of space and time. #betterthantv  (turn upside down for full effect 🙃) @savethebwca @friendsbwcaw #Wilderness  #savetheBWCA  #friendsbwcaw  #BoundaryWaters  #ourwild  #minnesotaontap  #exploremn  #onlyinmn  #capturemn  #campvibes  #captureminnesota  #getoutstayout  #GetOutside  #GetOutdoors  #keepitwild  #thisismymn  #theoutdoorfolk  #rei1440project  #TeamNorth  #mypubliclands  #neverstopexploring  #scoutforth  #damgooddays  #piragisnorthwoodscompany  #lettheoutsidein  #fishthebwca 
Canoeing the southern border of Canada. Care about these pure nature experiences? Support @sportsmenbwca and @backcountryhunters, groups concerned with maintaining these sites for generations to come. Thank you to Rockwood Lodge and Outfitters for making this trip possible. #savethebwca #bwca #publiclandowner #boundarywaters

A couple of new, river-related prints of mine were included in a printmaking exhibition at St Mary’s University called One Foot in the River. I will have some prints of these available for purchase soon. All proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to @savethebwca.

A poster of fish species found in the Midwest included a phrase describing the Northern Pike; "A species designed for the assimilation of other species." Hilarious and true!

One of the things I love most about being an avid adventurer is the outdoor community. This is such a remarkable group of people who inspire me to do more, explore farther, push my boundaries, and help to build my confidence.
We had such a wonderful evening out supporting @socexpedition 
We are privileged to call the co-founder, Alyce, of this non-profit our friend. She blows me away with her positivity and bravery as she sets out to make the outdoors a more inclusive space. 
So glad we got to explore together this summer and can’t wait to explore more with you, Alyce!!
