Happy New Year
If the Eastern Great Lakes "Gearing up for Winter" - Jan 7, 2012: Valens hang was a chance for over a dozen hearty souls to fine tune their cold-weather rigs, then "Snowshoes across Algonquin" will be a chance to get out into the great outdoors and put those skills to practice.
The basic plan will be to take advantage of Algonquin's network of winter trails to snowshoe and/or ski a short way into the park and set up a proper winter bush camp for two nights. Algonquin's winter regulations prohibit fishing but permit camping virtually anywhere but established sites, so the Park's wide open. Ideas for an alternate location where we can set up camp just outside of the Park and throw in some ice-fishing would be welcome.
When: February 18, 19 and 20th 2012 (Can be pushed out one week if necessary)
Where: Algonquin Park Highway 60 Corridor: Exact location TBD
