For 14 summers I went to Algonquin Park. This video from Canadian Olympic Kayaker Adam Van Koeverden captures the peace and serenity that kept drawing me back.
The simple living recharges the basic components of your life, lets you start again with a clean slate. I once went three days without seeing or talking to anyone until I ran into a couple of Swedish kayakers who hardly spoke English.
I introduced numerous people to the park on these trips, and most went back with me again on additional trips, or later with their own crews.
Again the video reminds me I ought to get back up there for a week next spring.
