I was fortunate enough to spend Christmas in a beautifully snow covered Algonquin Park 😍 For so many years I longed for Christmas Day to look different for me. For the last eleven or so I've opted to work because that was a super easy distraction from the sadness I felt on a day where you're supposed to feel the polar opposite. Today though, staring out at vista like this, I realized something: what I have isn't second best, and my life is pretty fucking great just the way it is. For the most part, I have total freedom in life, and I will never again take that for granted. Sorry for the sap, I didn't intend for the word vomit. Look how pretty though 👀🌲❄️ I am slowly figuring it out. #merrychristmas #algonquinpark #hiking #highlandbackpackingtrail #optoutside #ontariowinter #ontariosnow #snowgram #backpacking #backcountrycamping #brrrr #algonquin #anxietysucks #goodvibesonly

Such a beautiful spot and only a short hike from the Mew Lake campground. If you haven't been it is a great day hike for people of all ages. Bonus Mew Lake is open during the winter and for past few years they have had a skating rink.

Come on winter, bring some of these cold temps down to the Kawarthas. Enough with the rain already. 🤞

It was a very windy site without open water but at least there was no shortage of firewood.

Walked the same trail twice in two weeks. Look at the differences between Fall and Winter. Nature at its best. #pugcamper #wintercamping #algonquin #highlandbackpackingtrail

Autumn in Algonquin Provincial Park hiking the outer loop along the Highland Trail. Not sure I can recall a late October weekend this perfect.

Nearly two weeks ago, I decided that enough was enough: after four months of failed attempts to get a backcountry trip off the ground, I was hitting the trail with or without a trekking partner... However, as someone who genuinely enjoys sharing this kind of experience, I was thrilled when @mypetlobster - in desperate need of an excuse to get out of the city (she'd lost her summer recovering from a broken arm) - decided to join me for a four day hike through Algonquin's stunning highlands. The scenery did not disappoint.

If given the choice, I expect that the preference of most would be the balmy, summer heat. Me? I'd happily take early fall any day of the week. I mean, c'mon: look at this colour palette! Not a bad setting to show your best bud the ropes (though, in retrospect, maybe we should've given that arm a bit more time to heal... 😬). Thanks for a much needed adventure, brah! #backcountry #backpacking #algonquinpark #ontarioparks #highlandbackpackingtrail #provokinglake #alwaysexplore
