Inside the Boundary Waters

Meteorologist Brittney Merlot Takes Us Deep Into The Vast Wilderness To Prepare For All Types Of Weather.

The vast wilderness of the Boundary Waters  is in our backyard with thousands of visitors a year. It has the highest point in Minnesota and some of the oldest rock on Earth.

But what about the weather when you head into the wilderness? How can you prepare?

Our very own Meteorologist Brittney Merlot recently spent a lot of time in some very remote Boundary Waters locations.

She decided to head into the million acre wilderness for two weeks. To go off of the grid, relax and become one with nature. Fishing on the 1,000 lakes, watching loons pass by and hearing their calls, following moose tracks and feeling the power of waterfalls, while beavers swam by.

“Just to sit on the edge of the boundary waters and just watch the boundary waters wake up. Those are some of the fun things, just to sit there and listen to the silence and just absorb that.” explained Steve Nelson from Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters.

This vast wild also puts you in a situation for possible unexpected weather and she explains how you can prepare and stay safe as she weathers the storms first hand.
