Skiing over a portage gives a wonderful advantage over summer travel because there is no canoe overhead to interrupt the view of the beautiful giants all around. Many times I have often found my self at the base of a huge white pine, peering out from under the canoe, trying to take in the height of the 200 year old giant. Or, maybe it’s the beautiful corkscrew of an ancient cedar, some of which were old timers when Columbus discovered America. The plants and trees of the border country are wonderful. This section touches on a few of the many species that are found here. I hope you enjoy learning about these amazing plants.
