Adventure Bound

Archives

Last fall I discovered McCrae Lake while searching for an adventure activity near the cottage. The cottage is great, but I can only relax so long before looking for something to do. Fall at McCrae Lake was beautiful and led to my first HIGH cliff jumping experience – like 82 feet high! Spring at McCrae Lake did not disappoint.  McCrae Lake has a reputation for more rowdy campers because of its accessibility…. Read More

If you have not figured it out by now, I am not one to back down from a challenge. Even when everyone else thinks it’s a crazy. One of my adventure checklist items is cliff jumping.  I’ve jumped from small cliffs, but never a “real” cliff. This summer I had been to a cottage on the Georgian Bay and the rocky scenery struck me as likely to have jumping rocks. Googling lead… Read More

Spelunking.  Although I prefer being above ground or in the sky, I have always been intrigued by the idea of exploring caves.  I tried Scenic Caves and enjoyed it, but I wanted to try caving in a more natural setting.   Enter Warsaw Caves. Although this place is REALLY busy on weekends for camping and the beach, if you go in the evening the caves are relatively quiet. I was also pleasantly… Read More

I have been going to Algonquin Park for as long as I can remember. My parents were avid backcountry campers (my mom still is) and passed on a love of the outdoors to me. A few visits to the park a year, since I was a child, has left me with a pretty good collection of personal favourite locations. With that in mind I have collected my top ten places to visit… Read More

I thought a backcountry Algonquin Trip was not in the cards this year, but guess what? I managed to squeeze one in.  If you would like to read some of my musings about Algonquin and the trip check out my guest post on the Algonquin Outfitters blog. Read on for a trip log of our three day trip! DAY ONE: Another trip started out bright and early. We arrived at Algonquin Outfitters around 9:15… Read More

Unfortunately this year was not great for backcountry camping. Between school, internships, skydiving and life in general, it just didn’t happen. I am still attempting to plan something for the fall, but day trips may be it this year. I talked about hiking at Rattlesnake Point, but another great place is the Guelph Lake Conservation Area. It’s a bit farther from the GTA, but still a manageable drive at just over an… Read More

Quiet holiday Mondays have a way of helping to discover hidden treasures. One of those treasures is Rattlesnake Point. The sky was crystal clear and for May it was a beautiful hot morning. It was not a day to stay inside. But what could we do? Luckily I live a short drive from Rattlesnake point and have yet to visit. The park is run by Conservation Halton and costs $6.75 to enter….

Lost. The beautiful green forest quickly became terrifying. Trees in every direction and no obvious way out. I have camped as long as I can remember. And not campground camping with a tent pitched beside a car. Real backcountry camping. Camping taught many lessons from trip planning, to hanging a bear bag, to reading a map and more. But one experience forever stands-out in my memory. I was 12 and we took… Read More

In July 2013, I decided on a birthday canoe trip. It was a short trip for my first time planning EVERYTHING on my own (our second trip in 6 days can be read about here).  I was hoping to find an “interesting” campsite, which lead us to the waterfall campsite on Head Lake. DAY ONE We left the GTA early and arrived to Algonquin around 8:30.  We picked up our permits and… Read More

This is in response to Cee’s Weekly Challenge. This week, in light of American Thanksgiving, we are asked to think of 50 things we enjoy.  Canadian Thanksgiving may have been several weeks ago, but this is a super way to reflect on what I have and am grateful for. Perfect at any time of year! List 50 things I enjoy: Galloping through fields on my horse My cats Jude and Rigby My… Read More
