Lake Superior Provincial Park -- Peat Mountain (3-24-07)
A VERY early spring hike I took up Peat Mountain in Lake Superior Provincial Park in northern Ontario. Still a heck of a lot of snow left which made it a difficult hike. It was still beautiful though! The drive back was awesome also, check out the shots towards the end of the album for shots along scenic Highway 17 north of Sault Ste. Marie...
