Two nights on Grand Lake in Algonquin Park
2018 June 15-17
We were hoping for something a little more ambitious for our first overnight trip of the season, but Diana's old rotator-cuff injury has recently flared up. So we needed something that was a relatively short paddle away. We wouldn't normally consider camping on Grand Lake, but it's virtually deserted during the bug season, especially during the week. We were originally planning on starting two days earlier, but we postponed on the basis of the weather forecast. In retrospect, that turned out to be a good decision.
It was a good little trip. We had good weather, the bugs were manageable, and although we saw other people out on the lake, no one camped close to us.
