Lake Superior Starlight - One of the best experiences I have had shooting the Milky Way. It took me 11 hours to get to this spot on Lake Superior.

16 Scouts and 9 adults headed north to Ontario, Canada’s Algonquin Provincial Park. We divided into three crews (two of nine, one of seven) and each pursued a different route through the park during 7 days of paddling and portaging.
For the last nine years every summer our Scouts pile into a van and drive north to Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park for a week-long high adventure canoe trip.

Two years ago we started alternating these canoe trips with a trip to Kandersteg International Scout Center every third year.
For the past two years I have led a group of Venture Scouts for a week of canoeing in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario Canada. For both trips we used services provided by Algonquin Outfitters in nearby Brent. The folks at Algonquin provide equipment, advice and great Swift canoes at a very reasonable price. Algonquin Outfitters staff was well informed and helpful making every possible accommodation for our needs.
