    Algonquin Park Winter Gathering

    I try to make it up to Algonquin Park each winter to shoot along the snow-shoe trails. I'm heading up for a couple days on Friday Feb. 1 to Sunday Feb. 3rd.

    If you're not busy feel free to join me. I'll be tenting during the evenings, but others might want to stay at the Wolf Den Lodge or at a Huntsville Hotel.

    Anyone is welcome to come along. Let me know and we'll pick a meeting spot.

    I plan to shoot some 8x10 but most likely will have a MF around as well.

    Oh, I thought Algonquin Park in northern Virginia. Silly me. Enjoy.

    Hi Rob.

    I'm planning to visit Algonquin this winter as well and I've marked the February 1 weekend in my schedule. I'll be staying at the Wolfden, but I admire your hardiness with the winter camping.

    I'll follow up with you as the weekend approaches and the weather picture becomes clear; if its forecast to be stormy and -30 I may pass!

    That sounds really good! I'll know a bit more closer to the time if I can do that because I'll be starting a new job around then. I even have an interesting shooting venue out near Barry's Bay, about 50 km out of the east gate but I wanna keep that secret for now. Until then, are you doing anything in the Toronto area?

    Sounds great Rob. Nothing better than Algonquin in the winter (well maybe the summer, fall, or spring!!!). I will plan to meet up with you that weekend for some 8x10 fun in the snow.

    I have an opportunity to go up to Algonquin Park in mid-February. What kind of climatic conditions should I expect? Clothing?

    Sandy if you look at Rob's picture above, that is pretty much what to expect. Check http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/ for details on the park and current weather. It can get VERY cold at times so dress for the coldest weather so that you can always remove some layers if it is warmer. It is truly a wondrous place all year round.

    Hi Rob,
    I am thinking of driving up to Algonquin tomorrow, since I spent Christmas with my daughter and son-in-law, and grandson in TO. Is there a good location in the park that one can shoot at, not too farfrom the car?

    I am also planning a trip to the Jacobsville area, but i am not too sure about the roads around there in winter, since they are gravel, and snow is expected. Have you been in that area in winter?

    Thanks.

    Hi Rob,
    I would be interested in this also but I would just camp in my tent. Is that what you have in mind? For all of the times that I have flown over it I have never actually visited Algonquin and I have wanted to for a long time. Having a guide avail is too much to pass up. : )
