Algonquin, Our home away from home

Guest blog  Melodie Percy

Its' safe to say that when it comes to camping in Ontario, I'm completely biased. From the age of two my family, aunts, uncles and grandparents included, loaded up our cars and headed up to Algonquin Park. We did it a few times a year, even winter but my favourite time was always our end of summer trip during the last three weeks of August. The importance of connecting with nature and being in tune with the universal rhythm was instilled at a young age and has become part of who I am. Now as a mom of three myself, I share this with my own children.

Camping in Ontario

Agawa Rock Pictographs
Last summer my family went camping in Northern Ontario to Pukaskwa National Park. It was a far away destination from Toronto; a 14 hour drive and that is only one way. We enjoyed the road trip through Ontario to Puskawa and especially the stop at Agawa Rock Pictographs, a half kilometer mini scenic hike. It was so neat to see pictographs up close.
