With a moniker like Girl of 10,000 Lakes, you can expect to see plenty of water-based travels on Jenny Anderson’s Instagram page. A seasoned traveler, Anderson has an active life filled with adventure to the brim.
Traveling full time with her partner and child, her vacations revolve around water and fishing. There are also plenty of hikes and camping. “My goal is to evoke inspiration and wonder through the beauty of the great outdoors,” she writes on her website. And with well over 16,000 followers on Instagram, a growing number of people seem to be taking note.
Incredibly enough, Anderson’s love for the great outdoors wasn’t instilled in her early on, but rather came as she matured. “That’s why no matter your experience level, I encourage you to to take more detours, step outside your comfort zone, and try something new outdoors,” she explains on her website.
One of her top recommendations is the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. “I think everyone should experience the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness at least once in their lifetime,” she stressed, “and if you can, do it with an outfitter. Whether it’s the pristine waters or secluded wilderness, the call of loons, eagles soaring above, the milkiest of milky ways or the fantastic fishing—there are so many reasons Nick and I go back several times every year.”
