Orr, Minnesota

I've spent some of the most amazing summer's of my life in Orr, Minnesota. My first trip there was for camp in 1993. I had just turned 16. Camp lasted 3 weeks, a good amount of time to enjoy the area. We did a load of outdoors activities but the most incredible was canoeing for 4 days on the Boundary Waters between MN and Canada. At the time, the water was clean enough to drink out of the lake.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful, Fresh Air, Clean Lakes, Middle of Nowhereness
  • Cons:Too damn cold in the winter
  • In a nutshell:Almost Heavenly June-August

    ...but Yogi, I don't think Ranger Gina likes us stealing picnic baskets.
