So last February we took a backpacking/snowshoeing trip out in Frontenac Provincial Park for 3 days. (Just got back from some snowshoeing in the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands and hopefully that video doesn't end up taking a year to finally get around to editing! :doh: )
Anyways prepared a short video of our trip as always. This time we really were testing out the two new GoPro camera's so it's not done up as a trip report like some of my other videos but I hope you enjoy anyways! I've included some photos from the trip as well!

Enjoy
Brad

Hi jjpt,
Yup that was me and my buddy nick you guys ran into. We only ran into 2 groups in total and small world, seems that both were from online canoeing forums!
First night (Saturday) we made it to Sheldon Lake and hiked over the ice about halfway down the lake before finding a great site. We headed into Victoria Lake the next day via portages and the frozen lakes. The Ganaraska past Sheldon was covered in about 2 feet of snow in parts and we made really good time by sticking to the ice. Only difficult part was the shallow stream and marsh at the entrance to Victoria. Even sticking to the shoreline we broke through slightly for some wet boots. Heading back we bushwhacked over the ridges/followed the Ganaraska around the marsh then took the same route back, except this time took the portage to Devils lake instead of the trail. Faster alternative and only took us roughly 3 hours to hike back out from Victoria. Lots to explore in QEIIWPP in winter, Im thinking I've got some great video from the trip.

Small community of adventurers indeed! When exploring the area this summer I immediately thought it would be a great place to come in the winter. The geography of the area really lends itself to travel by snowshoe or skis. I have just begun to scratch the surface of the park and definately will be back.
