    Episode 28: BLM & Our Trip Into the BWCA with Sawbill Canoe Outfitters

    Episode 28: BLM & Our Trip Into the BWCA with Sawbill Canoe Outfitters

    You may have noticed that Exploring the North Shore did not have a new episode 2 weeks ago, as scheduled. We decided to observe "Black Out Tuesday" that week and did not release the episode we were working on in observation of the Black Lives Matter movement and everything happening in Minnesota and around the world. We support BLM, we support the protesters, and we support equality for all POC. We give our statement at the start of this episode.  *Then, Martha and Jaye head into the BWCA! Starting at Sawbill Canoe Outfitters at the end of the Sawbill Trail, owner Dan Shirley guides the ladies through the outfitting process. Then, they head out onto Sawbill Lake on what was meant to be a 3-lake journey into the BWCA. That's not exactly what happened! Listened to find out how the trip really went in this week's episode of Exploring the North Shore.*This episode is sponsored by Cascade Vacation Rentals.
