08.26.2011 – Canoeing Adventures in Canada

August 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Last week I got to travel to one of my favorite places in the world: Algonquin Provincial Park in Northern Ontario, Canada. The place is simply amazing. This was my third trip up north and, once again, it was nothing short of spectacular. Except for a couple of thunderstorms overnight on Wednesday, the weather was absolutely beautiful: Sunny and mid 70s during the day, and cool and mid 50s in the evening. Perfect for canoeing and camping in the wilderness!

We were lucky to get to experience some fantastic sunrises…

And some incredible sunsets…

The moon was so bright most nights, that we barely needed flashlights to get around our campsites after dark…

Not to mention the stunning beauty that is Algonquin park during the day…

There was not a tremendous amount of wildlife to be found this year. Frogs, toads, and a huge variety of birds were the majority of what we found. But we did find this little guy, and we instantly liked him since he is sporting his Steeler’s Black ‘N Gold! :)…

We in this area of the world are very used to seeing white-tailed deer. However, in Algonquin they are very rare. We spotted these guys from about a mile away on the lake while we were canoeing. The babies were have an awesome time splashing around in the water and running all over. We snuck up as slowly and quietly as we could to avoid spooking them, and I was able to get a few shots off before they bounded off into the woods…

As always, the trip to Algonquin was amazing. It’s very therapeutic to get away from the craziness of every day life for a while and just soak in some of Mother Natures handiwork. Next year we are planning a trip with our daughters. It will be their first time there, and I’m super stoked to share this place with them

Oh yeah, and here’s me…soaking up some good Canadian sunshine! 🙂
