In these photo's, I am spending my summer - eight hours north of Toronto in the beautiful Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario. I am in the middle of my 15 day Tamakwa canoe trip. It is day eight and I am on a day hike to the top of a huge mountain.
Algonquin Park - Camp Tamakwa
Being in the middle of nowhere brought many conditions. I normally wouldn't dress or act the way I did, but something about being in the middle of the woods, not seeing anyone other then my fellow eight companions for days. I noticed myself acting a little different. I think spending all that time in the wilderness with my fellow man changed me drastically. I didn't care what I looked like, how I smelled, or how I acted, The pressures were completely off. It was just you and your friends in the woods working together and hanging out. I think it was a mix of being away from home and bonding with my buds that helped change my perspective on life.
Algonquin Park with his camp friends is where Michael wanted to be, it gave him a sense of accomplishment, confidence, and he loved every moment he was there. He especially enjoyed being a counselor. He was so proud of the summer of 2006 where he had an opportunity to be the sole counselor for his group. The senior counselor had to arrive late and leave one week earlier.
