... re on the road by 8:30, heading for the West gate where we buy our permit and receive the glad news that none of the establishments we'd hoped to find coffee at will be open till April - can't wait that long. Seems only the visitor centre stays open year round, they serve refreshments so all is not lost.
Route 60 runs right across the bottom of the park from W to E, some 56K with markers every K so it's very easy to find the numerous walking tracks ...
... we got back to our bungalows we were all frozen and soaking, and since we didn't want to swim in the lake while it was pouring, we all went to do our stuff - I had a nap. In the evening the rain stopped and we were able to sit outside at a campfire and have S'mores after dinner.

Heck I deserved to pig out.
All in a day's work.
... having delicious blood, I always get eaten alive. But even Dave, who almost never gets bitten, came out with more than a few bites, the little vampires even got into his beard!
The way most people do Algonquin is portaging, although I only just found out what this was. I think you just chuck your stuff in a canoe, and carry the canoe overland to get to the next lot of water. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea, maybe 1 day Ill try it. But for ...
