Beyond the Canoe: Outdoor Recreation on the North Shore

From May to November, canoeing is the talk of the North Shore and the Boundary Waters area. Rightfully so, as the region is in the heart of canoe country.

However, the opportunities for outdoor recreation in Cook County and the Lake Superior region are ample. With that in mind, WTIP is launching a new series to explore some of these forms to enjoy the outdoors that extend past the gunnels of a canoe.

Support for this series comes from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Beyond the Canoe: Ice Skating

The opportunities for outdoor recreation that don’t involve canoeing in Cook County and the Lake Superior region are ample. With that in mind, WTIP is launching a new series to explore some of these forms to enjoy the outdoors that extend past the gunnels.

Today, host Matthew Baxley does just that in this conversation with Lutsen resident John Oberholtzer as they discuss ice skating in the North Woods.
