Welcome to pictures and some writing about a 4.000 miles drive through one of the most beautiful countries in the world during the most perfect season, which is called "the Indian summer".
... a little trip through Ontario ... 2 weeks
The route: Toronto - Algonquin - Kirkland - Cochran - Wawa - Manitoulin - Toronto.
Bears, lake front cottages, fishing, relaxing, experiencing just a bit of .... Ontario, Canada.
The Algonquin Park north of Toronto is huge and wonderful. What a treat it is to rent a private cottage with a lake right next to it. Have a campfire in the Grizzly land and get eaten up by the National bird, the Mosquito.
Of course, it is great fun with some lovely black bottled Ice Beer.
Toronto is the heart of Ontario. A pulsating, cosmopolitan city with loads of different cultures and nationalities.
Almost as big as an ocean is the Lake Superior in Southern Ontario, which is in fact the largest sweet water lake in the world. Not easy to climb on these rocks in order to see some old Inuit writing.

Only hours away from modern Toronto visitors get caught up by some unique nature and a spirit that combines the year 2.000 with eternity.
Endless space is the word and if they wouldn`t have a winter, Ontario would be probably a very crowded region.
Escaping urban temptations may take right away northwest to the huge Algonquin National Park.
" Going for the bear" like the friendly Canadians usually say when ignorant visitors are aiming for the outskirts of civilization.
As a little example, Madawaska combines a pleasant combination of both of it.
