Description from MH: Many years ago my grandfather showed me how to make a small birch bark canoe from a fallen tree. I will always love the beauty of white birch.

    Birch canoes are extra-special, aren’t they? I am pleased he taught you to use fallen birch bark. Is he still alive?

    Stunningly beautiful. What an amazing thing, to know how to make a birchbark canoe, and a wonderful activity to share with your grandfather. I wonder what his experience was learning to make one the first time, and who taught it to him? Perhaps birch reminded him of those memories, and fondly of you and his memories teaching you, too. I love this pick, especially the red bend jasper with the ceramic birch pieces. A fave.
