Boundary Waters Feast

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
-Marcus Aurelius

In winter, I traveled to Ely for a feast in the boundary waters. An extravagant multi-course meal, referencing the history of the boundary waters as well as modern tradition, cooked by J.D. Fratzke of Strip Club Meat and Fish. Part celebration of the bounty that is the Boundary Waters Wilderness Area, part styled photoshoot, part campaign to save the Boundary Waters, it was easily one of the most spectacular gatherings I have been a part of. This was a featured piece in the Heavy Table, and with support from Save the Boundary Waters.

And what a privilege it is to be alive and in the Boundary Waters. The Boundary Waters is the most spectacular preserved wilderness in the United States, and accessible enough to be enjoyed by those of us in Minnesota. Thank you yo Save the Boundary Waters for the work they do to preserve this precious resource.
