Backcountry camping in Algonquin park, Canada - Part2

by Ram Ya October. 08, 2016 4392 views

Algonquin park is well known for its Fall color spectacle but Fall is also known for unpredictable rain! The first day of the trip went quite well and we were lucky enough to not have rain. After day one dinner, we were tired and retired to our tents. I think this is the first time in a decade that I slept at 8PM!

It started raining quite heavily early in the morning. Part of our tent took a hit because I didn't secure the rain tarp properly. On the bright side, everybody was determined to make the best of our first rain experience on a backcountry trip. By the time we finished cooking our breakfast, the rain had completely stopped. So I took the opportunity to capture the beauty of this landscape.

We were on a campground very close to the lake and it was a bit into the lake almost like an island of its own. So I got to experience two completely different views from the campground. Photo below is my view of the opposite shore.

We had to return the canoe by 5PM on the second day.  We packed everything and started heading back to the launch point. It was quite beautiful because the rain had cleared and there was a lot of fog.

The sound of the canoe is a really peaceful thing. I think it has some healing powers!

Algonquin park is a bit more busy compare to Killarney (Click here to see my trip there). I think because of the proximity to Toronto. You can still find secluded places hidden inside the forest. Especially if you are willing to go backcountry. As we reached the launch point, we met several other canoers and tourists at the Canoe Lake.

I am running out of time, so I guess I will create another post for the scenery I captured on our drive through the park. This is part 2 of my trip, if you are interested in reading part 1, please click here.

As always, thanks for visiting and your comments :)

I bet! The color was just about to peak when we reached the park.
Wish we had time to explore this https://www.photoblog.com/carmen2/2016/09/19/bonnechere-caves/

The Bonnechere caves are pretty cool, definitely worth checking out one time, they have to pump the water out so it's only open in the spring to late summer I think, but it's only 30 min from Algonquin!
