A Welcoming Spot in the Algonquin Interior: Finding Solitude in Algonquin Provincial Park - Laurie March
In the article, the author discusses how many think she is crazy when she says she’s going on a trip to Algonquin park because it is normally quite busy. She proceeds to talk about how there are many peaceful areas in Algonquin park, like Welcome Lake, that one can go to. She gives a very detailed description of how to get to Welcome Lake, including more than one possible path. She tells of the many benefits of the lake, like how peaceful it is, sandy beach areas, great fishing areas, and other great wildlife that’s present. She also tells of one of the only drawbacks of the lake: small leeches.
I am not sure whether or not we are crossing paths with this lake on our trip, but the photo in the article looks quite similar to one taken on the CWOE blog a couple of years ago. If we are taking Welcome Lake on our route, this article will prove to be quite useful in the sense that it gives me an idea of what the lake is like, and that I should be on the lookout for leeches, especially in the easterly site of the lake. If we are not taking this route, if I ever take a canoe trip of my own into Algonquin Park, I’ll be sure to consider going to Welcome Lake. It’s great that such a practised wilderness adventurer like Laurie March is willing to share such incredible places like this.
