Northern Ontario walkabout

Last night I was looking at some pictures of a fall walkabout I went on a few years ago. I spent four wonderful days wandering around Northern Ontario, just me and my camera.

I'd like to tell you that I slept under the stars, fought off bears and really roughed it, but I did not. I wandered around during the day and spent the evenings in small motels and bed and breakfasts along the way.

One of my favourite things about wandering without intent, is that you never know what will be around the next corner.

One of my favourite places was the town of Red Rock.

When I arrived there it was pouring rain. But, I waited out the rain, knowing that moody weather always makes interesting photos.

One afternoon I met up with my friend, Erinn, and we explored a ghost town called Jackfish.

Words cannot possibly explain what a short walkabout does for your soul. If you try hard enough, you can see the beauty in just about anything.
