"I can see the entire nipissing canoe route!" This was my first remark upon laying my eyes on Jeff's new map: "Canoeing and Exploring Map of Algonquin Provincial Park & The Haliburton Highlands" - Version 4.
Jeff's new map comes eighteen months after the release of version 3. It has been a long time in development and I gotta say it is worth the wait. Read More...

The Algonquin Forest Authority (AFA) has released its yearly harvesting schedule map. The map depicts locations through-out Algonquin Park where logging is to take place on a seasonal basis. The map also displays haulage routes, denoting where noise associated with haulage might occur.

My friend Jeffrey and I went for a quick day-trip visit up through the road that runs to the Forest Management Research Station just before Kilometre#11 on highway#60.
We picked up our daily vehicle permit around 9:00am at the West Gate. On the way there we saw three deer; a Doe and two fawns running down the highway at us just outside of Dwight. All was well as traffic stopped both ways and the deer made their way off the highway and into the surrounding bush. We also saw a red fox at the West Gate, that was neat! Read More...

Returned yesterday from three nights of winter camping via Cache Lake Access#8. While I am feverish for a paddle thru a favourite Algonquin Park Lake, winter never keeps my friends and I away.
Winter in Algonquin Park is quite different offering a rare and unique beauty that none of the other seasons can mimic. Read More...

I grabbed my friend Sean(of Ajax) and headed up Friday afternoon to Huntsville where we checked into a motel. There was a mini-snowstorm happening so we dressed for the weather and went for a stroll through downtown Huntsville. We stopped by the Algonquin Outfitters store, drooling over the gear there, then made our way to cool pub; Moose Delaneys. The rest of the evening was spent pigging out and channel surfing in our motel room.

I hadn't been to The Park since October 10th, 2011. That is almost four months. Four months too long to be away from my favourite place on Earth.
Having some spare time and needing a break from trip-log writing (Yes, there are some new trip-logs coming!) I hopped into my vehicle and made my way north. Read More...
