Q:Are there lots of snakes and bears or moose in Awenda provincial park?
Snakes yes - but I’ve yet to see one myself. It is highly unlikely that you will find bears and moose in those parts - so I’ve been told anyway. You never know!
My wildlife sightings in Awenda have been limited so far to chipmunks, owls, and frogs.
Toronto Union Station - One Last Look
A final glimpse of Canada’s busiest commuter hub before renovations come to a close in a year or so. I’ll certainly miss the grittiness of the platform and the 70’s space modern look of the main floor - it’ll be the end of an era.

Canoe Lake - Algonquin Park, Ontario
Tom Thomson’s Memorial Cairn
In all the years I have been visiting Ontario’s Algonquin Park, not once have I had the opportunity to visit the Tom Thomson cairn that was erected at a favourite camping spot of his on Canoe Lake - the very lake in which he was found dead. My last trip to the park changed that.
Fortunately for me I did not suffer the same fate as poor Tom as I canoed out to this point - you can only reach this cairn by canoe which to me makes it extra special.
