A crazy racoon, beautiful sun rise and the land beyond the lost
Broken up clouds with a sunny disposition was the start to my long tedious drive to a place called Lost Coin Lake, where I was about to embark on a solo adventure and the start of the Algonquin Park Project; a summer long tourism project on the interior of the largest protected natural area in Ontario.
Algonquin threw it all at me; rain, snow, sleet, heavy winds, doomsday bugs and one very angry father goose. You gave it your worst and I made the the best of it. 75km of paddling, 12km of hiking, hundreds of photos and over 20 pages of journal entries. I'll start posting the stories and photos on Monday, one day at a time..
Given the short spring season we had at hand, I've had to rush the Algonquin Park Project to get the best opportunity to shoot the landscapes of the park before the busy season kicks into high gear. That means leaving at a moments notice to get in and out of the park fast and efficiently.
Between May 4th and May 6th I was in the North-East end of the park shooting the landscapes of Lost Coin Lake and the Ranger Cabin located on that body of water. It was a gorgeous area, filled with surreal landscapes and beautiful wildlife. Though I have several images from the trip with journal entries to match, I will have to post them in the coming weeks once I'm back in the office. For now, here is a glimspe into this magical place.
As I now prepare to go into the wild, I will say farewell for 7 days. This time, its' the Central Eastern end of Algonquin that calls.
