Cold morning on Big Thunder Lake - Algonquin Provincial Park
After 35 years of backcountry camping together she still had the gumption to tell me “Don’t take my F***ing picture!”. Note the bug head gear. There still were clouds of black flies in late July.

Maple Creek Portage - Algonquin Provincial Park
The backcountry canoeists we met the day before said the Club Lake end of the portage was “a bit muddy”. A bit?!!! I was lucky to escape this quicksand! As I would later learn thanks to the abundant snow and rain this year most portage ends were “a bit muddy”, and very buggy.

I like this picture. I shows how much fun I am having learning to ride the uni.
This was at the 6km mark of a 7km trail run, or at the 6km and 13km if you were running two loops. I know it is not a flattering picture. But it shows how steep it was!
