Devils Rock
It's hard to believe that one of Northeastern Ontario's best and most accessible vistas is seldom seen. This view would become very important to one of Canada's most successful writers.     To young detectives worldwide, he was known under the pseudonyms Carolyn Keene, Roy Rockwood and most famously Franklin W. Dixon author of The Hardy Boys series. Author Leslie McFarlane, who passed away on September 6, 1977, was one of the most successful Canadian…
Plein Air Painting

The water lapping against the side of your canoe is a relaxing rhythm as the waves gently rock you into a trance, allowing your mind and creativity to open up to the wild beauty that is yours to capture. This Northeastern Ontario experience…
Spoiler Alert: There's an Unlikely Hero
Summers are glorious in northern Ontario. The sun is shining, the temps are high and the dock is calling your name. Occasionally, the rain brings a sweet repose from the sweltering heat. The rain also draws water to the marshes, and other eco-systems, which breed some of the most unsightly, unwanted guests.  You guessed it, I'm talking about the ankle biting, blood sucking bugs (otherwise referred to as birds) of northern Ontario. Like unwanted guests,…

At the edge of Cup & Saucer Trail
Manitoulin Island is the largest freshwater island in the world. With an area of 2766 km2 it could take weeks to truly explore all its freshwater lakes and rivers and to hike its countless trails.

Culture Found Along the Great Spirit Circle Trail
A visit to Manitoulin Island is so much more than a visit to the world’s largest freshwater island. Yes, it is an outdoor lover’s playground housing scenic waterfalls and spectacular views, but it is also a destination where one can discover and learn about history and culture. Our travels around Manitoulin Island followed the Great Spirit Circle Trail, an aboriginal experience giving us a glimpse into the lives of the Anishnawbek people. There are 7…
My first photo of North Bay, ever.
I guess you could call me a local. I was born and raised in Sudbury, ON, and transplanted to North Bay, ON for post-secondary in 2008.  Growing up here, I found there were two common threads among young people. First, you have to get a car or your life is over. So much of the north was designed for driving. Second, when you're old enough, you have to move away. My friends and I were guilty…
