I like this forum, with it's members from many different places...places I've never been, never paddled.
I would love to see a few photos from a favorite canoe destination....kind of like a travel brochure...make me want to go there some day!

Here's what I mean...

Place: Killarney Provincial Park, Bell, David, Balsam loop
Where: Ontario, Canada, 5 hours north of Niagara Falls, on north of Georgian Bay

Picture one: With the amazing quartzite outcroppings and mirror like water, it's no wonder the "Group of Seven" artists fought to preserve this place
Picture two: A portage runs along the creek with a waterfall from Bell to David lake.
Picture three: Although this is a very popular park, it had a tremendous feeling of remoteness. Loons were abundant, a beaver slid off a rock face almost into our canoe, and I thought we would see a moose in the weedy shallows...no luck this trip.

Wow, Great photos!!! Thanks for including the locations...that's what makes this fun for me! Still considering options for our first week of summer vacation trip. Maine and Yellowstone, WY have always been on my "wish list".
Keep the great pics coming!!!

A calm morning on Rock Pond, Whitney Wilderness Area. This was May 16. The black flys were just terrible with no breeze.

Great pictures Willis...makes me want to add the Lila Traverse to my list. The Oswegatchie is on my list for this summer...an up and back from Wanakena (NY in northern ADK's). That last photo makes me want to paddle right now!

Mr Seeker,
Love those photos...that stone foundation at Low's complex was a horse stable...I have photos of it when it still looked like a stable, I'll look for them.

thanks.

there were several buildings there... when i attended the scout camp in the late 70s, some of them were still standing... didn't know one was a horse stable.

Seeker,

Here's how it looked when it was still recognizable as a stable...I thought I had photos of the inside, but I guess I don't. Sloped floors, individual stalls and a common drainage trough for you know what...I always wondered why anyone would want to sleep above all that stuff!! And in the background is part of Hitchin's Ridge, before there was a maintained and marked trail to it.

This looks like my type of place. I will have do some research for this before heading out there next year.

That view of Henderson is looking S, got lucky with the evening light. Everyone usually brags about the views to the N, and with good reason
