The Haunting of Lake Temagami

It would appear something followed us out of the Spirit Forest on our Obabika Loop trip in July. Here, one of the hammock tents on our site is taken over shortly after dusk by these creatures.

The creatures are some of my trip mates posing inside the tent fly in front of a lantern. Good fun for our last night on trip. This was taken in the narrows going to Stony Inlet.

Camping on Diamond Lake I

This is a view of my tent on Temagami’s Diamond Lake. I stopped here to camp on a 10 day tour of the area following the Obabika Loop from Lake Temagami and back.

I’m lighting the tent up with my Kindle backlight here. Due to the full moon we couldn’t shoot milky way photos this trip.

Misty Mountains

A view looking back toward the Pacific from the trails around Point Mugu in California. I started the day in a cold cloudy mist and went for a hike here. By the time I got to the top of the trail I was baking in summer like heat. This was on my way back to the parking just off the Pacific Coast Highway #1 (PCH) where my rental car was.

Sunset Reflections on Burnt Island

The sun sets behind an island on Algonquin Park’s Burnt Island Lake. Viewed from my campsite on Saturday night as the wind dropped and the water went glassy calm. Of course, this also meant a voracious attack from the blackflies but I managed to get a few photos in before retreating to the shelter of our campfire smoke.

End of Day – Burnt Island Lake I

An image of my pack canoe at our campsite around sunset on Saturday night. We managed to get the coveted island site near the middle of the lake this time. This is looking southwest toward the Baby Joe Lake portage.
