Camping in Algonquin Park

Long ago, we had scheduled a family camping trip to Algonquin Park for the Labour Day long weekend in September. As the date came for us to leave, our cat got a bladder infection and was taken to the vet. He needed to be given medicine twice a day, so my wife stayed at home…

Killarney Provincial Park

Last fall, I spent 5 days on a solo camping trip in Algonquin Park. It was a quiet time to reflect and get away from the everyday rush of life. I enjoyed the trip so much that I decided to do it again this year. In mid-October, I spent 5 days in Killarney Provincial Park…

Since the park is situated on a north-south peninsula, there are numerous possibilities for capturing fantastic sunrise and sunset shots over Georgian Bay. I’ve only been to the park on a camping trip one other time with my family…
