Five days paddling and hiking in Killarney Park with the kid.
Someone posted a comment on my recent trip report wondering where indeed is the highest point in Silver Peak. Apparently there used to be a fire tower on top of it? And the tower footings mark the highest point. At the end of the Silver Peak trail section there are some concrete footings. I’m not sure they’re from a fire tower - they don’t seem far enough apart, compared to those still around at Maple Mountain and Ishpatina Ridge. But they’re for some kind of tower. One is visible in this photo.
I have posted my usual report on the canoe trip my friend Martin and I took last weekend. This year we went to Killarney Park. Martin had never been so I had to take him 'round to show him the sites. The trip did not disappoint. Read: Killarney Park: Carlyle, David, Killarney via Three Narrows
I just got back from the longest canoe trip I've ever done. Ten days, 109km and a couple dozen portages through Killarney Park, just south of Sudbury, in Ontario's Near North. Read the report.
I spent the Thanksgiving long weekend on a canoe trip in Killarney Provincial Park, put on by the National Capital Region YMCA Canoe Camping Club. The name is as long as the portages, but they're worth doing. As is my habit I've posted my trip journal with photos to my web site.
