Since moving to Muskoka and making the drive to Bracebridge for groceries and supplies, etc, I have noticed a sign along highway 118 that says Huckleberry Rock Trail, but until today, I had not investigated it.  I was really glad I did because it's a pretty nice place! It was the day of the Tragically Hip concert, their farewell show in Kingston. I had originally had plans to go camping with some friends but things [...]

I have been camping almost every weekend since I moved up to Muskoka. It's been amazing but on this weekend I'd decided to take a break and head home to see my family.  That left the Sunday open for a day trip though and I had been hearing about this place called Moon River since I'd arrived, so I figured it was time to check it out! I put my boat up on my truck [...]

I woke up to a beautiful day Sunday, birds chirping, sun out and the promise from the Weather Network of a warm day! I was supposed to go out for a hike with my good friend Andrea, but she advised me she was a bit under the weather and couldn't make it. As I am going on a canoe trip next, then car camping without my kayak following, I decided I needed to get out [...]

#CleanUpOurParks One piece of trash at a time!!!

After many hikes in the forest, paddles on lakes, rivers, streams, creeks,  and even just walking our city streets, I am realizing what a huge issue trash is becoming!  Yesterday my friend and I hiked Rockway Conservation Area in Pelham, ON and came across so much trash that I couldn't just stand by and do nothing! Our parks are where we play with nature and borrow the space to obtain serenity and peace for ourselves. [...]
