Going back to the roots…


I always loved camping since I was a child when I used to go with my father and the students from the University he works in. Unfortunately it is not a common activity back home, and I had only a few opportunities to go camping… But here in Canada it is THE thing to do.

It is the second time I go camping here. First trip we went to “French river”, a beautiful large river crossing rocky landscape…

This time we went to Algonquin Park north east of Toronto. The park is huge, on the map it is really impressing. Mainly when you spend 6 hours on a canoe to go from a point to another, then you see that on the map and you figure out that what you did was ridiculous.

The landscape is different from French river, you have a multitude of landscapes, swamps, rivers, lakes, thick forests …We saw a big moose on the way, he was Imperturbable, still eating his large set of plants while we were advancing slowly not to frighten him… But he wasn’t frightened at all, he was just looking at us as to say: you fool humans get out of here🙂

unfortunately no body had a camera with him at that time, we left them all at the camping spot. We were also overwhelmed by the beaver’s dams we found on our way, you have to stop every time to pull the canoe. And it is not funny anymore after the 6th dam when you have hours of canoeing behind you…

it was a great week end, it is amazing how mother nature can be so beautiful…
