Boundary Waters & Quetico Calendar

The Boundary Waters & Quetico Calendar gives you twelve outstanding photographs to remind you of where you’ve spent precious, perhaps even life-changing, moments. Locations are identified so you will know exactly where these familiar scenes are awaiting your return.

When our most enthusiastic customers get in touch, they always comment on the sidebars. These contain a variety of topics from human and natural history to camping tips and even recipes, with some occasional philosophical rants about wilderness and getting kids outdoors. Moon phases, hunting and fishing seasons, emergency contacts, permit information, holidays and local events are included. With all that we try to leave enough room for you to add your appointments and special events on each date.

Books for Blizzards

This content was originally published in the 2021-2022 Ely Winter Times.    We like to claim author Sarah Stonich as our own, partly because she lived in the area for many years, but even more because she creates scenarios and characters that feel local in the best sense of the word.
