National Geographic's Adventurers of the Year, Dave and Amy Freeman spent 100 days paddling from Ely, Minnesota to Washington, DC to raise awareness of threats to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The 2,000-mile Paddle to DC odyssey began Sunday, August 24 near Ely, Minnesota and finished on December 3 when a canoe covered with signatures to Save the Boundary Waters arrived in the nation’s capital. 

Click here to see more photos and read an interview with Dave and Amy on Nat Geo's Adventure Blog, and be sure to sign their petition to say no to sulfide ore mining in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Watershed.

Congratulations, Dave and Amy, on your successful journey!
