An Exciting Race and an Inspirational Role Model

For the second year in a row Northwest Passage 3 volunteered at and documented the largest cross country ski race in North America. The 41st annual American Birkebeiner and its affiliated events drew over 10,000 hearty souls to the 50 kilometer long remote ski trail between Cable and Hayward Wisconsin.

My name is Ethan, and I am from Neillsville, Wisconsin. I like doing outdoor art and photography because it really lets me express my personality, interests and love of nature to others. I have been raised in a family that has exposed me to outdoor activities all of my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue and expand on these interests while I am at Northwest Passage. This turkey, tired from struggling to survive the rough part of winter has spread its wings to take flight to a more promising life leaving behind the struggles of the past with the sight in its eye to strive, survive and prosper in life to come no matter the hardships.” “Little One” by Cody. “My name is Cody and I am 12 years old.
