Fall Outfitting BWCA
The temperatures are dropping fast and so are the leafs. Fall is a simply magnificent time to travel into the BWCA. As the BWCA changes the nights get colder and the sun falls in the sky sooner. Fall in the BWCA is the definition of solitude. With little, to no bugs to swat it can be an ideal time for a great adventure.
The Good and The Bad of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in the Fall
Every rose does have its thorn, as Poison had mentioned a time or two, the Boundary Waters in Fall is no different. Colder temperatures means stunning color changes and less bugs but it also means that safety is that much more critical. Instead of dipping in the water to cool off from the hot sun, or finding a shady spot, you will need to find warmth anytime you get cold and insulation for the chilly nights. Fall is usually a season for the more experienced because of this. Don’t fret if your group is newer to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area it doesn’t mean you have to give up, bringing a Professional Boundary Waters Guide can help ensure your safety.
We want you to be safe out there!
BWCA Fall Safety
Hypothermia is the number one killer of outdoor recreationists, according to The New York Times. Hypothermia is when the body’s core temperature gets lower than 95 degrees Fahrenheit. It doesn’t even have to be at or below freezing for someone to catch Hypothermia. It can happen in outdoor temperatures that are anywhere from 30 – 70 degrees. Cold water contact accelerates the rate your body looses temperature, as does the wind.
