Here's to great guests

Thanks to great weather early this year. We have had guests from Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Brazil, Australia, USA. Our Latest Guests were from the UK and US and were on a month long tour across Canada. They were obviously good friends and we could see why and were infact blogging their travels. The two days spent at the Algonquin Inn were spent hiking the trails in Algonquin Park, fishing, Kayaking on Oxtongue Lake and learning as much as they could about the area and the goings on in Huntsville. They had a great time and we are glad that we had the privalige to meet them.

Spring Moose 2010

Went for a drive through the park on Hwy 60 and on the way back, was happy to see this guy standing by the roadside, quietly chewing on branches. He was in no hurry and not at all shy. It was a great opportunity to get some really super photos.
