Not only is Algonquin great for moose sightings - but it's also a great way to enjoy the summer by being outside. Being in nature. Oh and I should mention that the ice-cream up there just tastes better. Moose tracks what??
I've been thinking of a way to saw some snippets of our trip with you - so today I am participating in Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday . It's been awhile since I've participated - probably due to the fact that I rarely pull out my camera. So though these shots aren't fresh - at least the will make you want to visit Algonquin.
There are tons of lakes and rivers surrounding the park. This is a shot from one of the interpretive trails 'Whiskey Rapids' which was along the Oxtongue River. There hasn't been much rain this year so the rapids weren't so rapid. But the walk was worth it.
This popular daisy was snapped on the 'Spruce Bog Boardwalk' neither of these insects are bees. I think one is a deer fly - but the other one? Anyone?
Unfortunately because I can't capture just how fresh the air is there - when I look a this picture it reminds me just how fresh everything is in Algonquin in June. I can only imagine how awesome it is in May when spring is in full force. The reason Steve and I went on so many of these walks was in hopes to see a moose. We hadn't seen any so we planned to walk the 'Beaver Pond' trail in hopes of maybe seeing a beaver. We didn't. But we did have an opportunity to see the pond from this view.
Well I didn't see eight together - but I saw eight in total that weekend. I am talking about moose. Yes I saw eight moose. I still can't believe it. And I still can't stop talking about it. Definitely the highlight of my summer. If this is lame - I don't care. Moose are awesome.
Like fresh - nearly everywhere is calm in Algonquin - but I found the bog the perfect place to sit and relax and enjoy the sounds of nature.
So do you want to go to Algonquin Provincial Park now or what? I know I do.
