Joe Richard is a a Florida writer, photographer and fishing guide. His account of his first trip to the Quetico Provincial Park with us last spring is the lead article in the Spring 2015 edition of The Boundary Waters Journal along with two of his photographs and three of mine. The cover shot is of Gary Fiedler on his 220-day solo canoe trip (either a “selfie” by Gary or by Dawn LaPointe of Radiant Spirit Gallery in Duluth ). We crossed paths our first day out and Gary found the new fishing shirt I left behind on a portage on a hot day and he wore it for the rest of the trip, then sent me a couple beautiful prints in exchange. The paddle shot was taken in 2011 on Kahshahpiwi Lake.
