Large sandy beaches in Algonquin?

A long sandy beach that stretch out from shoreline for hundreds of feet in shallow water.

Where you say?  Florida?

Nope, try the backcountry of Algonquin Park and beautiful Bice Lake.  Add this lake and the campsites #10 or #11 to your camping plans for next year.  Just make sure not to hog it for yourself, if we are paddling by!

Darwin Award winners from Ironman Kona

Ironman Kona Wave Blast

The meca of triathlons is the Ironman world championships in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Everyone heads down around 5am to jostle for position to watch the swim start at the Kona pier.

These Darwin award winners thought the wave break wall at the pier would be a great place to set up camp.  Can you spot the nice Canon 70-200m lens that is getting a nice salt bath?

 

Spring Runoff from Garibaldi Provincial Park

Hidden stream from Garibaldi Provincial Park

The back-roads around BC are full of hidden little gems and who says you can’t shoot it the rain. Found this spot on the drive up to Whistler and had to keep huddled under a large umbrella.

Drifting at Neys Provincial Park

Driftwood at Neys Provincial Park

Along the north shore of Lake Superior is one of my favorite Ontario parks; Neys Provincial Park.  The park was visited frequently by The Group of  Seven and has a great mix of Canadian northern ruggedness, sandy beaches and lots of driftwood.
