Yes, Colden, we all know your mind is in the gutter.

I envy your ability to camp out on a whim. Was anyone else at Middle Settlement?

Sometimes, It's the view you get from camp. This was taken after dinner on a September paddle trek on Charleston Lake In Eastern Ontario.

This little freedom I've been enjoying will be coming to an abrupt end in the very near future... which is why I've been making the most of it while I still can! Soon I'll be back on a weekend schedule like everyone else.

Yes, there were two college-age guys at the lean-to. Some other people were signed in at the trailhead too, but I didn't see them. Fairly busy for midweek, but not too bad overall.

That's a really nice shot.

Since when does camping get old?

Here are some shots from this past weekend, at a place called Round Pond. I went into this with glum expectations about the weather, but I was very pleasantly surprised on both days. The only disappointment was the insect situation... mosquitoes and midges were biting like it was still June.

By the way, I treated myself to a new camera this week. So I was mostly farting around with this new toy when I took these pictures. New toys are good.

The trekking poles are new... as of February 2007!

I only use the things in deep snow, on steep mountains, on Canadian Shield topography, and when carrying canoes long distances. In this case, I was planning on tackling a lot of steep terrain... as you can probably tell from the Giant Mountain Wilderness thread I just posted. They do help take some of the stress off my legs. On most occasions I can do without them, though.

The tent was new last summer. It's a solo tent I only use now and then, when I'm looking to save a little weight.

Gulf Brook:

We actually tented it but made sure we reserved a spot at the lean-to for cooking, eating, and enjoying the fire since I left the tarp at home and the forecast called for RAIN RAIN RAIN...in reality, not too much rain, but enough to bring a wet tent home and a get a little wet on the trip down Hurricane.




Round Lake first camping/paddling trip for my little brother, we do things right in my family, no public campgrounds or roadside camping even if it is your first trip, sadly, (and to my dads sadness as well) he said he preffered to stay home next time with his twin sister and go on "play dates" which for all you people over 25 is some sort of new fangled 2000s era concoction where you arrange for your kids to play with other kids. Now most of you had this sort of thing when visiting a friend a few towns away, but this is done nowadays for kids in the same apartment building or on the same block!!!:

From a campsite up in the mountains... and certainly among the highest legal campsites in the Adirondacks, at just a hair below 4000 feet.

Don't those Crocs make me look sexy?
