Dog Skijoring – Seeing is Believing at Arrowhead Provincial Park

Just when you’re looking forward to spring … I bring you snow-covered images. But not any images – pics of dog skijoring. That’s right, dog skijoring. You cross-country ski with your dog tethered to you. I thought it was crazy until I saw it with my own eyes: a group of excited dogs actively trying […]

Park Quest #7: Fort Wellington National Historic Site Prescott, Ontario

That’s why Victor loved Fort Wellington National Historic Site in Prescott, Ontario, Canada.
I’m not saying Fort Wellington stinks, just the opposite: it’s an ideal stretch and learn stop along the Toronto to Ottawa journey, about 10 minutes from the TransCanada highway.
