Vacationers net lots of big ones at SuperiorNationalForest, Minn. Yours-the natural beauties that didn't get away The fishing's great in the lakes and streams of your National Forests, and there's a reason. The forests themselves might have been abandoned. But wise men loved them, and conserved them for you and your children-and there they stand in all their wild and wonderful greatness. Superior National Forest, in Minnesota's Arrowhead country, is one of the most beautiful. Here is a pristine wilderness. On thousands of lakes and streams, canoe trips take you where your heart leaps with the leaping trout as he walks on his tail shaking the lure. You can follow pioneer fur-traders' paths through the Gunflint wilderness... along rushing streams unchanged since Hiawatha came this way to ask the Arrowmaker for the hand of Minnehaha. Thanks to the U.S. Forest Service and the Forest Rangers, vast areas in your National Forests remain as the Great Spirit Manitou made them-green-arched temples that offer you and every American the magic medicine of Nature's unspoiled beauty. * * * FREE TOUR INFORMATION If you would like to visit Superior National Forest, or drive anywhere in the U.S.A., let us help plan your trip.
