A Welcoming Spot in the Algonquin InteriorFinding solitude in Algonquin Provincial Park
This article is written by an avid outdoors woman, who describes a secluded area in Algonquin Park to escape from the crowds of people. She reveals her favourite spot to go camping without a clutter of other campers in the Park, which is Welcome Lake. She gives precise directions on how to get to the lake, which is not easy to get to because it includes some lengthy paddles and portages. The lake has nice beaches and good places to fish but there are small leaches in the lake.
The article reminds me of the PAD3O canoe trip because of the descriptions of paddling and portaging in Algonquin Park. It's a good article because it shares with readers how to access a quiet isolated part of the Park, which other outdoors adventurers might prefer to keep quiet. I found it surprising that the article refers to Algonquin Park being crowded since during our school trip I saw only another school trip and the odd person canoeing. I guess the Park gets busier in the summer when the weather is warm. During rainy May, I only high school students and the odd outdoors adventurers.
