I have taught the ways of the wilderness for well over thirty years and have authored a novel which dives deep into the shadows which follow you as you traverse wilderness trails. It is my hope to reach as many people as possible to tell everyone that the wilderness is not a place to be wary of. It is the only place where a person can dig deep into their soul and find that which is hidden to them by modern day society.

We are in trouble! Day two in Algonquin Park



Liam and I embark on our second day of paddling. We had no idea of the trouble we were about to face. 

The low water level on the Crow River forced us to abandon the thought of actually canoeing. 


We had to embrace the reality that we were going to have to walk several kilometers before gaining paddle depth water. 


That is the beauty of a canoe trip; you never know what is around the next bend.

    1. I was aware of potential low water so I called the park's office and they informed me that the levels were navigable. I just didn't think they meant by foot. It was a great trip because of the many challenges we faced. You're right, when in doubt, always make a call to the park to get as much information as possible. I always add a couple of days to any trip just in case things get messed up.
