I kinda wanted to share where we’re going camping, but at the same time, I also wanted to keep it secret… so I grabbed the Google Satellite imagery from the area just to give an idea of the terrain.
I will say, though, that it’s deep in Northern Ontario, a little north of halfway between Sudbury and Timmins, but quite aways off the main highway… and the secondary highway for that matter. We take a dirt logging road, part of which can be seen at the bottom left of the image above.
And then we take to the water!! The path marked in blue traces the rivers we take to get to the tiny little lake that contains the tiny little island where we usually camp. The blue path is 10 miles exactly (according to Google), or 16 km to those of us more familiar with metric. And the whole way is absolutely stunningly beautiful…
We camped here in ‘02, ‘03, ‘04, ‘05, ‘06, not ‘07 (because we used our vacation days for our honeymoon instead), ‘08, ‘09, ’10, and we’re preparing ‘11!
I’m SO looking forward to it, I’m probably going to be tweeting and facebooking a lot about it as I’m heading up there! Be warned! :P
