Ein kleiner Eindruck vom Algonquin Park, dem wohl bekanntesten, beliebtesten und auch aeltesten Naturpark Ontarios, ca 250km nordoestlich von Toronto gelegen. Im rund 7500 Quadratkilometer grossen Park werden ca. 2400 Seen gezaehlt, in der ganzen Provinz Ontario sind natuerlich es unzaehlige.

Algonquin Provincial Park is a provincial park (...) in Central Ontario, Canada, mostly within the Unorganized South Part of Nipissing District. Established in 1893, it is the oldest provincial park in Canada. Additions since its creation have increased the park to its current size of about 7653 square kilometres. (...)

Over 2,400 lakes and 1,200 kilometres of streams and rivers are located within the park. (...)

The park is considered part of the "border" between northern Ontario and southern Ontario. The park is in an area of transition between northern coniferous forest and southern deciduous forest. This unique mixture of forest types, and the wide variety of environments in the park, allows the park to support an uncommon diversity of plant and animal species. It is also an important site for wildlife research.

Algonquin Park was named a National Historic Site of Canada in 1992 in recognition of several heritage values, including: its role in the development of park management; pioneering visitor interpretation programs later adopted by national and provincial parks across the country; its role in inspiring artists, which in turn gave Canadians a greater sense of their country (...)

Ueber den See: (von www.smokelake.com)
Smoke Lake is located in the south west area of Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. It is one of the larger lakes in Algonquin with a length of close to 7km. It is one of the few lakes in the Park where cottage leases were offered. However, cottage life on Smoke takes a unique and peaceful experience. There is no water skiing or the like, jet skiing, or boats with a horsepower over 20 permitted on the lake.
