Hey AuroraLily, I grew up about a half-hour drive from Algonquin Park, in Huntsville. Ive been to the park more times than I can remember, doing everything from day hikes to week-long solo canoe trips in the more northern areas. Between my parents who are outdoor enthusiasts, and my high school with their beginning of the year outtrips, Ive spent a decent amount of my life in the bush. Just writing about it is bringing back great memories.
LadyFaile, what camp does your brother work at? A good friend of mine has a family cottage on Canoe Lake, and spent many of his summers as a camper and then later a councilor at Camp Ahmek.
