It is unusual to bring a guitar into the BWCAW. Everything must by portaged and paddled, after all. And you don’t want to disturb the wilderness experience of other travelers. But, it can be done, and we did this week.

We paddled into the wilderness with some friends from Alaska and decided a relaxing song around the campfire with an acoustic guitar would be fun.

This video shows Wilderness Guide Kate Ford playing the guitar and singing “Light of the Campfire” with Maria Allen.


  1. Lovely harmonies ladies!! I like that you even included that last verse that we wrote. Thanks for making me smile!
