A couple of weeks ago Cameron and I spent a few days in a yurt. The yurt is on private land just off the north-western tip of Algonquin Park. We took the long way up and drove along Hwy 60 going through the park. On our way up we saw some fall colour, ran into a bit of snow and passed many lakes. The biggest highlight for me was seeing a moose and her calf on the side of the highway in Algonquin park. It was my first moose sighting in the wild! Do I get some kind of Canadian merit badge for that?
Once at the yurt we spent our time cozying up in front of the wood stove, canoeing, stargazing and trying to make coffee without our cone. Some more wildlife sightings included a beaver (we think) and a mink.
Back when we had our long weekend (however many weeks ago that was) we spent one of our days in Elora. We wandered through the town itself—pretty cute, with some old stone buildings. Then, we hiked along the Elora Gorge where you could see plenty of people taking the less strenuous route in tubes. We finished our day with a refreshing dip in an old rock quarry turned swimming hole and hangout for teens.
This past weekend was a long weekend for Cameron so we decided to rent a car and do a little exploring nearby. Friday we spent the day in Hamilton. We saw a waterfall, drank coffee, ate some food, wandered around and saw some art at the AGH. Not a bad day.
