Superb View From Top Of The Giant

Top of the Giant Hike in Northwest Ontario

The Top of the Giant hike in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park rewards those who make the 12 km one way trek with outstanding views over Lake Superior. Despite its considerable length, there is only 290 m (961 feet) of elevation gain and the first 8 km of the hike are dead flat so you can cover a lot of ground quickly. The day we did the Top of the Giant hike did not look promising.…

Southern Headland Trail Hike in Pukaskwa

Our group of three and a dog were on day three of a five day backpacking trip in Pukaskwa National Park in northwestern Ontario. It turned out to be our day from hell. The plan for the day was to backpack from Fisherman's Cove to Morrison Harbour…

A Windy Morning On The Second Day Of The Michipicoten Island Circumnavigation

Kayaking Around Michipicoten Island in Lake Superior

One summer our party of five including our guide, Ginny, from Naturally Superior Adventures, completed a 70 kim kayaking trip around Michipicoten Island in Lake Superior. Mother Nature cooperated and supplied more sunshine than fog, little in the way of rain and enough wind to keep the majority of biting insects at bay - but not so much to keep us landlocked on shore. The Michipicoten Island circumnavigation was a great success - no boats…
