Voyageur Canoe Crew Member Maddy
We are so thankful to have Maddy back for her 3rd year as a Voyageur Crew member. Maddy is from St. Paul, MN and attends Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. This past semester she lived in Ecuador and had an amazing adventure.
When Maddy isn’t working during her time at Voyageur she likes hiking, canoeing and cliff jumping. She has been on a number of BWCA trips and her favorite BWCA Lake is Lake of the Clouds. Her favorite route is Round through Snipe and out through Ham and her favorite piece of camping equipment is a a good frying pan handle. I didn’t ask her the story behind that piece of equipment but I know there must be one because she used to say her hammock was her favorite piece of equipment. Maybe you can ask her for the story when you visit Voyageur this summer. The lake she most wants to visit is Blackstone in the Quetico Park and I don’t blame her. It is one of my favorite lakes in the
The lake she most wants to visit is Blackstone in the Quetico Park and I don’t blame her. It is one of my favorite lakes in the northwoods and I have many happy memories from there.
She likes to paddle solo and this summer she is most looking forward to floating the Cross River with the crew. After last year’s Seagull Creek adventure I really look forward to hearing about this crew adventure.
Although Maddy is in Environmental Studies when she grows up she wants to be the co-mail lady of the Gunflint Trail route with co-worker Sarah. It would be wonderful if she and Sarah took over the route because then they could continue to be a part of the Voyageur Crew for the rest of their lives.
