Algonquin Provincial Park Camping

August 19, 2013

Sorry for the lack of post but I've been busy enjoying the outdoors this summer. I went camping this past week for 3 days at Algonquin Provincial Park. I go camping once a year because I can't tolerate co-sharing the shower and washroom with strangers. 
I do enjoy being away from the city and having no signal on my phone to fiddle around with instagram or any social media. It's a nice break from being constantly "plugged in". 
Our home for 3 days
Canisbay Lake
I went on a trail around Peck lake. It was a very scenic hike for 1.5 hours.
When I was a little kid, I used to play outside a lot with my friends. The one thing we enjoyed doing was catching dragonflies. I was telling my bf my story and he didn't believe me so while we were walking along a path, I spotted a lot of dragonflies and caught this one. Don't worry, the dragonfly wasn't harmed. I set it free after this picture.
I really enjoyed camping this year most especially because of the food we made. I love grilling using firewood. We grilled sausages, steaks, veggies, etc.  The food tastes so much better!
I also learned how to chop wood properly! Life lessons you can't learn online.
The only thing I can complain about was the mosquitoes that attacked my legs a couple of times even with bug spray...oh nature!
