Algonquin Park in Canada has a vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes. In fact, there are at least 7,635 square kilometers of forests, bogs, lakes and rivers. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by paddle or on foot. That’s why this Sounds of Algonquin Park 45 single has an entire side dedicated to paddling around the site!
There is also a second Algonquin. Here you can enjoy camping at one of eight campgrounds, hike one of 14 trails, take part in the extensive educational Discovery Program, or visit Algonquin’s exceptional Visitor Centre, Logging Museum and Art Centre.

Did you recognize any of the loons or wolves? Maybe they moved! Thanks for commenting Mike!
