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.

Favourite Hikes in Canada – Chikanishing River Trail

The Chikanishing River Trail can be found just west of the George Lake campground in Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario.  It is a relatively short hike at 3km, but has some fantastic views of the rugged Georgian Bay shoreline and its amazing red granite rock.

This is a fantastic trail to take the kids as the trail blazers are painted on the red granite and you can make a fun game out of finding and following the blazers.  Along the trail there are a number of signs to describe the history and geology of the area and you will also see old moorings for when the area supported a thriving lumber industry.

More information can be found at Killarney Provincial Park and Friends of Killarney.

Long Point – Sand, Sand and then some more sand

Long Point is my latest print and as the name indicates was taken in the Long Point Provincial Park, Ontario.  The 37″ x50″ print was made using Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 320gsm and mounted on Dibond.

Long Point is one of my favorite parks to visit, especially in early spring when up to 30,000 Tundra Swans migrate through the area.  The park is itself is a sand spit located on the northern shore of Lake Erie and has been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
