This is what I told the MNR via their online consultation system about their pondering extending leases on cottages within the boundaries of Algonquin provincial park. In short: They’ve had a good run. And now they’re done.
We’ve thought of Achray. We’re headed to the park (we hope) in August, and were hoping to keep crowds to a dull roar. We’re willing to do a couple of short portages (aka less than 500m each). We’ll be coming from Ottawa and driving four or five hours is about as much as the family can tolerate.
It’s been two years since I’ve been in a canoe for any longer than an afternoon. But this September I spent four excellent days with my friend Martin paddling through the north-central part of Algonquin Park, starting at Brent. Read Cedar-Hogan-Catfish.
The first time I’ve been seriously canoeing in two years. Read the report. I’m extremely grateful to Irene for indulging me.
