mapsbyjeff1

OMG! They're heeeere.
That's right. After almost 10 years a newer and even better version of Jeff's Algonquin Map is now available. Now entitled "
Maps by Jeff", Jeff has released a set of 5 maps encompassing the entire Algonquin Provincial Park area, plus a few areas immediately outside The Park boundary that co-inside to canoe routes that enter/exit The Park accordingly.

I've ordered all five maps to add to my collection and I am anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail. Until they arrive I am reviewing the digital edition of the map(s). There is so much to cover in this review. Firstly, I will start with the online experience.

2022 Guiding schedule now online!

D1220229A

This year I've lined up two exciting guided canoe programs in Algonquin Park.

The first program is The Meanest Link Canoe Route. A brutal but fun canoe route that can challenge even the most hardened canoeist. The guided trip is offered three times through-out 2022, In July, August and September. Each trip is two weeks in length. A real tour du force canoe trip. To learn more and reserve your spot on the guided meanest link trip, click
here.

Another program is a
guided day-trip for small groups of up to 5 people via access#2 Tim River. Split 5 ways (Or even 4 ways) the cost of the trip is quite an economical way to enjoy a day of paddling through one of the lesser travelled access points in Algonquin Park. You get a lot of 'bang for your buck' in this deal. Read More...

We’ve had 2 solid days in a row of above 0°C temperatures and sunshine, lots of sunshine. I believe that spring has finally sprung, at long last! As you can see in the photo above Algonquin Park is still locked in winter’s embrace, but that will change soon.

Website renamed!


markinthepark-logo

Effective March 3rd, 2018 “Mark’s Algonquin Park Sampler” is no longer a sampler web site of sorts of Algonquin Park. Rather, I now spend more time in Algonquin Park, therefore justifying the change in name. The website along with a proper logo (That even looks like me!) will now assume its proper name associated with its originating URL: ”markinthepark.com”. Read More...

Scribble, scribble...



Soon the lakes will be ice-covered, the forest buried in snow and trip-log writing season will be upon me. Already, I can feel the urge to write tugging at my heart. I look forward to a long winter of writing as I recount my past journeys into Algonquin Park.

The update includes many things; sixteen new trip-logs, new slideshow gallery section, new links page to all things Algonquin Park orientated and more. I think you’ll find the web site is a vast improvement over its predecessor. Individual trip-logs now contain daily weather dat as well as daily route maps in the sidebar.
