Love the Wild Things
October 7, 2016
More from the home at home series:
Although people fixate on the prairie, one of the things I like best about home is the proximity of true wilderness – basically at our doorstep. Probably the best example is the Heritage River system of The Bloodvein, a river that flows out of Woodland Caribou in Ontario and across the eastern Manitoba shield country down to Lake Winnipeg. The only access to the system is by water (canoe) or float plane. The end of the roads, rail lines and pipelines are south of the system. It traverses a true wilderness which remains in its original state of well being as opposed to being a wilderness river that is surrounded by roads and people.
If you want to live like Georgia O’Keefe, then this is the place to do it.
Here’s a great film of young friends trying to tackle the river:
