Rock w/Moose; Algonquin Ancestral~EcoVenture
Rock with Moose (Intro to EcoPsych & Nature Therapy) Algonquin Park canoe trip is a beginner-friendly wilderness safari that typically initiates with a "festive campfire & legacy guide regale" near the center of the Madawaska River's present day watershed (between Whitefish and Rock) aka: the Old Rockin' Chair. This is less than a 15min canoe paddle from the Vision Pits & Cairns vision quest site noted in ’Vision Pits’, Cairns and Petroglyphs at Rock Lake, Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario,” Ontario Archaeology 11 (1968) 47-64): It's also the 1st stop on this heritage excursion. Over three days it then follows the watershed to paddle Rock Lake, the next lake downriver, Galeairy Lake (Long Lake in earlier repute) & return via a natural form occupation area (Penn Lake and Penn Lake rapids). Sip Algonquin Tea Co. organic teas & sample other medicinal & edible herbs -- while paddling through morning mist, learning about and encountering Algonquin Park's most famous current residents. Moose sightings are exceedingly likely as the paddle takes us to where moose are known to be & at times of day moose generally appear. The naturalist guide (a 3rd Gen. Algonquin Canoeist & award winning anthropologist) also introduces guests to a Nineteenth Century Aboriginal Farmers of the Madawaska River site & explores the archeology, petroglyphs and pictographs of the area. Come say hello to Algonquin Park's history & wildlife including otters, beavers, loons, foxes, wolves and more.
