This stunning wallpaper shows Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota. Voyageurs is a water-based park where you must leave your car and take to the water to fully experience its lakes, islands and shorelines. Nearly 200 years ago voyageurs paddled birch bark canoes full of animal pelts and trade goods through this area on their way to Lake Athabaska, Canada. Today, people explore the park by houseboat, motorboat, canoe and kayak.
