This is the technological age, and it seems that we can never escape
the things that consume our lives on a day-to-day basis. Twitter is always tweeting; phones are always beeping. There is a place, that I have found, where escape is complete: the Canadian wilderness.
Every summer (more or less), my dad and I drive through five and half hours past the Canadian-US border to KaBeeLo lodge. When you get to the cabin, it is just you, whoever you brought with you, and the lake. There is no cell phone service, no sign of civilization and no internet. Yes, people can survive without internet.
KaBeeLo Lodge flies people out to their various lakes to fish for walleye, northern pike, muskie, and other species of fish native to Canadian lakes. Many people also go to these lakes to hunt as well, but fishing is in better season when my dad and I travel there.
Anyone who has fished in local lakes would understand that fishing it a waiting game. Well, not in the untouched Canadian waters. Since there is such a small number of people that fish these
lakes, the fish are able to breed to numbers that hardly exist (anymore) in the states. Many times, all one has to do is drop a line down with some sort of bait on a hook, wait for a few minutes, and then reel in a fish. One licensed person can keep up to four walleye at a time, but the rest must be released. In having such strict rules,
Canada is maintaining a healthy fish population.
Even if you do not like to fish or hunt, the Canadian wilderness is nonetheless one of the few remaining places where wildlief is so untamed and nearly untouched by humanity. When looking up
at the sky (without a speck of light pollution), you can see 10x as many stars as one could see in a city. There is beauty in this solitude, and Canada is where the human world is silenced.
