After my eviction from the US and recovering my wits at Moyra & Dave's, I meandered to Rock Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park. Got Slider setup just before big winds and a shower and it turned cold that night – broke out the HWB (hot water bottle).

The winds continued the next day so I took a hike around the Booth's Rock Trail. On the return, I shared the trail with a groundhog who passed me in the opposite direction just one foot away; I think my quiet talking to him helped reduce any anxiety. Interesting that I only saw Red Trillium on the trail and the wind is keeping Black Flies away :).
 
Tidbits:
- Camping in Provincial Parks is becoming too expensive for family fun; with HST it is over $41 a
night.
- Recycling, including composting, is amazing in the park - very little stuff is real garbage.
