I am off to Algonquin Park for our thanksgiving weekend, Oct 11-13. It is the park that was made famous by the group of seven painters and is truly an amazing place to visit.
The plan is to spend time viewing the fall colours which are at about 100% at the moment. Also to do some hiking, biking and maybe some canoeing. It is suppose to be a spectacular weekend of sunshine with day time highs of 20c(68f) and no pesky bugs like in the summer.
I am hoping to also see some moose, it is the rut season so they should be moving around more, never seen a mouse in person before so fingers crossed. The thing I want to avoid is bears unless at a very large distance, I'd rather not be dinner.
We are staying in a hotel so it should be comfortable in the evenings and is equiped with a bathroom and kitchenette. Those will be the only luxuries though, no internet and the last time I was up there was not even cell phone coverage, now that's ruffing it.
I will follow up with photo's next week.
