Algonquin Provincial Park

I went hiking for a week in Algonquin Provincial Park. This vacation was similar to the one I took last year, to Killarney. What’s the difference between the two parks? Killarney has more rocks and Algonquin has more trees. They’re both beautiful places.

I hiked most of the day trails — there are other longer trails where you camp as you go. In terms of wildlife I saw lots of chipmunks, a few grouse (or something like that), and a couple of snakes. I met people who’d seen a moose but I didn’t see one.

There’s an art gallery in the park. Their current exhibit called “The Canadian Shield” is wonderful — some sculpture, and many paintings influenced in content and style by the Group of Seven. This is the type of painting I would like to have on my wall.

I’ve added my photos below. You can click on a photo to get a bigger version.
