Anyone who follows my blog knows how much I enjoy visiting Canada’s national parks. So far I’ve been to 31 of the 47 parks. I’ve yet to visit Rouge – just outside of Toronto but I have been to two of them in the far north – Ivvavik and Auyuittuq. And in less than a month I’ll be visiting the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve for the first time. It’s located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence near the border of Quebec and Newfoundland. No one I have spoken with has ever heard of it. My dream one day is to hit them all but I may need to sell my house so I can afford the airfares to the remote ones!
Here are a few photos to whet your appetite for trips to national parks.
