"What is needed is a new conception and appreciation of the meaning of portages.  If we look at them in the light of old associations and as monuments to the days of the past, we see more than a carry between two lakes, a place of work or rest. We see them as the ancient wilderness roads of a race, relics of an adventurous past, rarities which in our time are becoming exceedingly precious.  Seen through the eyes of people who know these things and understand the intangible values of atmosphere, improvement for entirely practical reasons is unwarranted."

 Minnesota Conservationist, April 1936
