It’s been a LONG time, but I finally dragged the camera back out and was able to catch some of last night’s light show!

01.11.2017 – Ice Storm 2016

January 11, 2017 Leave a comment

A few weeks back we had a pretty intense ice storm come through the area. In looking outside the following morning, everything looked so cool. So, I decided to tough-out the freezing mist and take the camera outside for a bit to try to capture some of it…

12.12.2015 – This Summer’s Algonquin Park Trip

December 12, 2015 Leave a comment

I am definitely a little late getting these photos up on this blog. But, as the proverbial ‘they’ say, better late than never, right? This past August my daughter, her best friend, and her best friend’s dad, and I took our annual ‘pilgrimage’ to Algonquin Park in Ontario Canada. It’s always a highlight of the summer and I don’t think the season would feel right without getting up there at least once! For the first time we went to the very northern most part of the part and put-in on Kiosk Lake. We stayed our first night there on a really nice island site. The weather was spectacular the first day. The second day we paddled south over several portages and lakes and stayed two nights on Club Lake at the site of the abandoned Ritchie Brother’s Lumber Mill. The remnants of the camp and the equipment were to be found all over the campsite. It was very cool to explore. The weather wasn’t great the rest of the trip, so I didn’t get as many photos as I would have liked, but there are a handful! Here is what we saw while we were there…
