"This is my Ontario"

This is as good as it gets. for Canoe trips the Algonquin Park are so boss! Every real Canadian should have a canoe trip in the Algonquin on their bucket list. Melanie's brother Brad organized the entire thing. It was unreal! Brad and his gf Carly were in one canoe and Mel and I in the other. We did 3 days and 2 nights.
day one we did a couple lakes and a couple portage's the biggest portage we did was like 500m. great day.
doing my best Toby Roessing impression, its not a dog but Im still cool right?
day one camp, Melanie at the feed trough. day one camp was crazy. We camped on misty lake, there is only one camp site on the whole lake, you really get that feeling that you are in the bush and no one else is around. you could hear so clearly sound was insane, you would bang the paddle on the side of the canoe and the sound it made was nuts!
brad cooking up a storm.
a little snapping turtle that was our best friend after Melanie fed if some ground beef. I think we just messed up the food chain with that move.
full moon on the way up, just before the mosquito storm came through and ate us alive.
Me bonking after the 2.5km portage on day 2.
day 2 camp,
Dont bite the hand that feeds you. Brad did an awesome job with the food for the trip, this food barrel was a really cool thing I've never seen before but I guess its a good thing to have unless you wanna wake up next to a little bear.
the full dude man.
last day on the home stretch. my arms are weak.
Carly paddling like crazy. while brad snaps a couple shots.
a photo shoot off.
these people Im sure live in toronto, its a shame really.
the loop we did, counter clockwise kinda on the page. very cool.
this is the closest I ever need to be to toronto.
