    Default Trip To The Kawartha Highlands

    Well this time I Thought I'd change it up a little and post some of the photos I took on the trip as well as the usual video! Hope you enjoy the change.

    We took a short trip into Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park (Signature Site) is late August of this year. My father and I were tasked with re-introducing the rest of the family plus dog to canoeing, so we decided on an easy route with only 2 short portages and a minimal distance of paddling. I don't think you could have asked for a better route with our parameters. Not too remote, just far enough to feel out in the woods and some luxury camping comforts, mainly a picnic table, metal fire grills and thunderbox.


    Sunlight is fading fast on our first night on Loucks Lake



    Sunset on Loucks



    The stove we've used for the last few years. Lightweight and refillable though it seems to be losing it's ability to build up pressure now!



    Genny is enjoying the camping experience thoroughly



    On the portage form Loucks Lake/Creek into Cox lake there's a really scenic set of rapids, looks inviting for a swim if not for the beaver activity and the marshy creek below



    Needless to say Genny is pretty excited to try out canoeing. The sights and sounds of the creek flowing through the wetland seem to intrigue her most.



    The scenery on Cox lake was absolutely beautiful



    Last day, canoeing by the many cliffs on Long Lake



    Genny looks on, possiblyreflecting on a great trip



    And as always another video! 720P is nice and crisp.
    Happy paddling!

    Sounds like a great trip. Unfortunately, I am unable to see the photos. I'm not sure if it is a photobucket issue or an issue on my end.

    Seem to display fine for me. The hard link to the pictures posted is here, though its in no particular order. See if that works out.

    EDIT: Broken link. Seems changing the album title makes all the photos impossible to see. Fixed!

    For that coleman, they sell a repair kit. What is happening is the little rubber gromets are dry rotting and cracked. Kit is less then 10 dollars.
