Follow Erik Simula
(and his dog Kitigan) on a 1,000+ mile, 4-month solo journey in his 14-foot birch bark canoes. His route (the "Arrowhead Journey") is from the mouth of the Pigeon River on Lake Superior to Duluth, up the St. Louis River, across the Savanna Portage, up the Mississippi River, down the Bigfork River, up the Rainy River, and back the border route to Grand Portage.
Erik Simula was on Northern Tier National High Adventure's summer and Okpik winter camping program staff from 1982 to 1984. In 1984 Simula paddled to Hudson Bay. Currently Erik is a Park Ranger at Grand Portage National Monument.
