UPDATE/January 30/2012: some of these images have now been added to the shop!
I’m amazed how people can survive in what I think of as inhospitable terrain. These trees: also amazing.
I have to admit that I don’t blog as often as I feel I should because I rarely have much to say. I can’t say I’m any different in person; when my friends get together and the talk reaches a fever pitch, I tend to get quiet too. Sit back. Observe. Think.
Maybe for 2012 I can resolve to post more, but say less?

Wawa to Thunder Bay
Ontario has mountains? Ok, so they’re not the Rockies but the vistas once we passed Marathon were SO gorgeous. Every few seconds, one of us was exclaiming, “Oh! WOW! Did you see that?” and, “Oh my God, that’s so beautiful!” to the point of ridiculousness. It was mostly cool and rainy so we hightailed it to Thunder Bay as fast as we could, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t stop to make some beautiful images of the foggy forest. Sadly, the wild animal count at this point
Leaving B to clean what turned out to be a filthy, uninhabitable apartment, C and I took off to Ouimet Canyon and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Of course, we didn’t have anywhere near enough time as we thought we would, so we managed to drive a rocky and rough 9km to a scenic lookout at Sleeping Giant, and drive halfway into the park. A warning for all: when they say “rough road” in Northern Ontario, it means “please drive your tank; your sedan will likely not survive.” Definitely one for a return trip though; I could spend days in that park. Ouimet Canyon was very cool – literally – as the canyon floor is covered with rare Arctic plants normally found 1,000km to the north.
Oh, and B’s furniture was due to arrive today but it’s been delayed… for at least another four days. I won’t go into all the details here, but if you’re looking for a recommendation for a long distance moving company, I can tell you who to avoid
