I had been wanting to visit Wye Marsh for over a year now. On Sunday, a beautiful spring day, that visit finally happened. My friends Sam and Shylo had also wanted to go. So we picked a day and headed down to check out what Wye Marsh is all about. We paid the admission fee of $11.00 plus person, plus tax. I found it a bit steep but once I found out what the admission [...]

Life has been busy at Camper Christina's headquarters.  LOL.  As you may have read somewhere, I am taking my Level one instructor course with Ontario Sea Kayak Centre in a few weeks and am very excited!  Due to this, I am in study mode and even have pre-homework for the course. LOTS of homework actually. Sadly, there aren't enough hours in the day and sometimes I have to curb my exploring desire and stay home [...]

On Monday August 24th, 2015, my mom and I headed out to Whiskey Rapids Trail in Algonquin Park, one of our favourite trails there! Whiskey Rapids is a great trail. I love it for many reasons.  The trail starts off going down a bit of a steep hill.  You can almost hear the water right from the start but can not see it.  When it does come into view, you are repeatedly rewarded with gorgeous [...]

On Sunday August 23rd, 2015, my mom and I took a spin around Peck Lake Trail in Algonquin Park. We have done it many times and it is one of our favourite trails in the park.  It is very scenic and not too difficult for mom, who's about to turn 70 this year!  Last year when we were there we saw a humming bird, her first one ever and it was really exciting to see!

On Saturday August 22, 2015, my mom and I, en route to the cottage, stopped at the #TCTrail in Huntsville, Ontario, to check it out! It was 8am when we got there and the area was heavy with fog, but it was extremely beautiful! We turned into the parking lot at Avery Beach Park at  the end of Yonge Street, grabbed our backpacks and headed out to do some exploring, donned in our #WoodsExplorer shirts to promote the [...]

On Sunday August 9th, I left the TCT in Guelph and headed to do a section of the trail in Cambridge, in a somewhat round about way home. I was a bit tired from the night before, celebrating my friends wedding in Guelph, but had figured since I was already there, why not do some of the Trans Canada Trails out this way?  I mapped out a route to do the trail in Guelph, then [...]

The Marsh Trail is one of the many trails you can visit when at Rondeau Provincial Park.  I camped at Rondeau from July 24th to July 26th, and the day of our departure, we headed to the Marsh Trail for a hike to stretch our legs before our 4 hour drive back home. Here is the description of the trail from the @ontarioparks website : http://www.ontarioparks.com/park/rondeau (I hope it's okay that I quote this? ) "Marsh Trail – 7.2 [...]

Rockway Conservation Area is a 126 hectare park featuring the Bruce Trail and the Rockway Falls Side Trail.  It is a beautiful place to go for a hike, boasting many water features, great hiking and wildlife. On Saturday, July 11th, 2015, my friend Beth and I decided to go for an early evening hike at Rockway.  I am unsure if there are any other places to park, other than the lot I go to which [...]

Since I still have a bit of time to wait to go to Burnaby, BC and I love the @TCTrail, I figured Burnaby Street in Wainfleet would be a good place to start a section of the TC Trail for my bike ride today. I was very happy upon arrival to the trail. It was really easy to find it and I didn't get lost en route! YAY!  The trail is a bit more rural here [...]
