Well we got out again this weekend to enjoy what was an amazing weekend for weather. Highs of 26C° and perfect sleeping conditions. We needed the sleep Saturday night to as we managed to do a 20 Km hike, around Lookout Point trail and down to the light house trail on the Recreational trail. Started walking around 9 or 10 am ( not sure no watch to worry about) and didn’t arrive back to the campsite till around 4pm.
The one thing I found was the people around us were not friendly no hellos, no good mornings, had a bunch when we arrived late Friday night try to go around us in the parking lot on the side where I was turning into park. The next day when we went for firewood, I held the door for a lady into the main office and she proceeded to head straight for the counter to make sure she was first and then proceed to be almost 30 min reserving for a future trip which included her having to walk back to her car for her wallet ? During which a nother guy tried butting ahead by asking a question and it was easy to tell he was trying to move forward ahead so he could hurry up and enjoy his time off ? When the park clerk asked who was next he started forward to see if he could cut in front, but that wasn’t going to happen. The park was good, but I’m sorry I do much prefer being back country and alittle more isolated on a canoe trip rather than in a Park with a pile of others right beside you. Canoe trips are alot more work, but the benefits are alot more rewarding. We enjoyed ourselves and were together which is still priceless.
Forgot to mention, we wanted to visit Algonquin, but I’m glad we weren’t anywhere close to it after seeing the pictures of lined up cars trying to get in to see the fall colours.
