Double Duty

I borrow the rope from my boating safety kit to hang my bear barrel, attaching the canister to lob it over the branch first, as well as use it as an extra container.

This scene appealed to me with its common element of curves, of the pine, rock and the edge of the clouds.

Loaded For Bear

Ready to load everything I need to spend a couple of nights camping, via my 9-foot kayak. Storage is very limited but it all fits except for the bear barrel, which I strap behind the cockpit.

Crayfish Carcass

The bleached carcass of a crayfish greeted us when we landed at Henrietta Point, the southernmost tip of Franklin Island. It is one of the most popular camping spots for its easy accessibility, and one of the most interesting for its rock formations and abstract designs.

Lone Pine

A lone pine, doubled over by the prevailing winds and with a cluster of cones drooping at its tip, captured my attention as I passed by the unnamed island between Gaspar and Speer Islands.

Adam Brown

Adam Brown served as the Red Rock Light Tower keeper from 1898 to 1937, the longest span of any keeper in the Parry Sound area. A former fisherman from the neighbouring Mink Islands, he manned it until he was 75 years of age. He passed away in 1968 at 106, his name and role chiselled into the rock beside the tower for posterity.

Red Rock

Red Rock Light Tower, named for the coloured island of rock it's anchored to, not much larger than the structure itself, is an interesting place to visit when the weather and water cooperate. Built in 1911, this is the third incarnation, replacing two previous wooden ones that proved no match against the harsh elements.

College Of Cardinals

The vivid reds of the Cardinal flower, named after the cassocks worn by the Catholic Cardinals, embellish the landscape and this scene.
