24 Aug Killarney — get to know me!
I know more about Italy’s culture and hiking than I do about my own backyard. So, I am heading north: drive to Tobermory, take the two hour Chicheemaun ferry to Manitoulin Island then Killarney Park to hike two “difficult” trails: The Crack (6km) and Proulx Lake (12km).
But more than that I am jumping into Tom Thomson turf. Thomson is an iconic Canadian landscape painter–who was never a member of the famous Group of Seven–little tid bit I learned. Thomson died a mysterious death in Algonquin Park. He drowned, but the circumstances surrounding it are still undiscovered. Just began reading, Tom Thomson, Artist of the North, by Wayne Larsen.
In the next week, I will post pictures of my adventure up north; as well, I will outline where to find info if you’re considering the same Canadian voyage.
