GoPro and Algonquin Park

A trip report and photos of our last visit to Algonquin Park are still to come, but I thought it would be interesting to share the GoPro video I took. I hope everyone can experience a little bit of what is involved in backcountry canoe camping.  Although this was a shorter trip than the one Shayn and I did in July, we paddled a much larger lake — Ralph Bice (formally Butt Lake).  I took this video in real time and sped it up to create a time lapse effect. Enjoy!

This video starts at the put-in at Magnetawan access point and shows the quick paddle to the Hambone Lake portage, which we do in two carries.  If you look closely, we pass a mother and baby loon!

This video is across Hambone Lake to the Ralph Bice portage.  At some point you can see we had trouble locating the portage and checking the map several times.  Again, we pass a family of loons. We did the portage into Ralph Bice in two carries, but I cut out the second one because it thought that might get a bit boring!

This video shows us leave the Ralph Bice portage and paddling up the very beginning of the lake.  I cut it off at this point because this lake can take almost two hours to paddle and really who wants to watch all of that?  For reference, below the video I have circled where we entered Ralph Bice Lake, where the video stops with the line, and the other circle is where we camped.  A BIG lake!
