Devils Rock
It's hard to believe that one of Northeastern Ontario's best and most accessible vistas is seldom seen.

Dixon author of The Hardy Boys series. Author Leslie McFarlane, who passed away on September 6, 1977, was one of the most successful Canadian…

My Recent Bear Hunt in Marten River, ON Was a Successful One
I will never forget my dad having his arms wrapped around me and whispering in my ear, how to aim that old 1950’s pellet gun. Patience was clearly a virtue that he possessed, as there were two boys younger than me in the family. One at a time he would sit, explain and teach us to shoot that old pellet gun. Then from there we were not satisfied, so into the woods we would go,…
Highway 64 Riding
It's no secret that I love riding in Northern Ontario.
