Time: ~ 9:00pm
Location: North Lake, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, MN
Description: The sounds of the evening chorus surround a campfire as it burns down. I spent 8 days canoeing the wilderness alone, experiencing the sounds of one of the most pristine and beautiful ecosystems in the United States. This was my second to last night and also my favorite because the weather was absolutely perfect and there were so many nature sounds surrounding me that night. The recording starts with my campfire going full force and progress until the fire and evening chorus of birds have almost died down completely at around 10pm. Wear headphones for the best possible listening experience!
