I joined a Voyageur Quest this summer for a 3-day paddle into Algonquin Park. It was very sweet. We entered via North Canoe Lake, and after a few short portages found ourselves in Craig Lake where we camped for 2 nights. The weather could not have been finer and I had a few of the best swims of my life.
Despite rising at 5am our first morning and went in search of moose, I never saw any. As well I saw surprisingly few birds. However we did see bunnies, several frogs and quite a few loons.
