I recently finished a trip throughout the Algonquin Park, a beautiful and historical provincial park that has been named a national historic site. The history in the area is well worth a post on its own, and while I have started it, I am far from finished. I’m still on the road at the moment, [...]
Since starting I Backpack Canada in 2009, I’ve had the opportunity to see some extraordinary places and meet countless other travel writers and bloggers.
