Trip-log#80 is now online. This trip-log is more of a vacation log as there is very little in the way of text to read. However, there is the usual eye-candy accompanying the written trip-log.

I was informed recently by a reader of the "Windows" persuasion of errors when browsing the online galleries. Consequently, this rendered the galleries Un-viewable for certain users of Internet Explorer. The issue has now been resolved. Many thanks to the reader for alerting me of the problem.
On another note, I've been very busy and have not had quality time to write some anticipated trip-logs. There has been progress but it is very slow. Look for new trip-logs at the end of January 2012 or sign up to my newsletter for alerts.

Thumbnails have now been added to Gallery#92 (The Meanest Link Part I). This was an oversight originally, as I was in a rush to get the images online quickly back in August. I've also updated the Trip-logs menu to reflect upcoming additions.

Given the length of time that I usually take to post a trip-log, I've been requested by a reader to post the slideshow gallery (In advance of the written trip-log) of our 15 day trip of the Meanest Link canoe route through The Park. A gallery of seventy-nine images is now online. Click here to see the gallery now.

An integrated commenting system has now been added to the new blog page of the web site. The new commenting system is provided by the hugely popular "Disqus" centralized discussion platform.
It is hoped that this new commenting system will provide a stable and versatile platform to which readers of markinthepark.com can provide feedback in a way that is both easy and quick.

Stephen Molson has published a web site showcasing his vast collection of over thirty bathymetric maps of Algonquin Park. With a professional background in cartography and GIS applications (Just to name a few), I’ve come to the realization that these maps are highly detailed and will prove very useful to both my fishing and wildlife photography needs. Click here to visit Stephen’s web site now. Subsequently a link to Stephen's web site has been added to the "links" section of this web site.

Just six days after I returned from a trip, trip-log#90 is now online. This is the fastest I’ve ever posted a new trip-log and I am happy to report I am loving my new workflow. This is the last winter trip of the year and it will most likely be another seven weeks or so before I can paddle again...sigh...too long I figure. Enjoy the read!

The web site has undergone a massive overhaul and update. Presented with a cleaner layout and better structured pages, the web site look and feel has been improved.
Sixteen new trip-logs have been posted! Check the “Trip-logs” page to find the new trip-logs.
The web sites’s trip-log inventory is fragmented at this point in time. Many of the trip-logs from the old web site are online and can be accessed via a link on the “Trip-logs” page. Once all the old trip-logs have been converted to the new web site format, the old web site will be retired. Keep checking both this page and the “Blog” page for frequent updates.
There is also some new sections to explore: 101, Gear & Downloads just to name a few. The new “Gear” page of the web site relates some of the gear I use for interior canoe tripping in Algonquin Park, detailing both the pros and cons of each that I’ve discovered. “101” describes ways of how I get things done; from portaging a canoe to getting a fire going in the most extreme weather conditions. The “Downloads” page has goodies to download, from a few short movies to wallpaper for your computer desktop screen.
It gets better: A completely new photo slideshow gallery section with images from trip-logs that I’m sure many winter readers will enjoy. There’s even more, but don’t let me stop you here; go on, ‘click’, explore and enjoy!
