A Trip to Kejimkujik National Park

In Sites and Sounds on November 29, 2008 at 7:41 pm

A weekend in Nova Scotia usually entails making some sandwiches, a flask of coffee and packing up the car with hats, scarves and golves before heading off in some random direction not quite sure what you are going to find.

This weekend was no exception so fully kitted out we headed to Kejimkujik National park via a few dirt tracks and first nation settlements.

After some poor navigation from me (the map doesn’t always correspond to the few scattered road signs) we decided to swap places i.e. Cameron navigate and me drive. I successfully managed to freak him out, drifting in some mud and testing out our car a little (although it now has a few extra teeth marks/nail scratches in the inside of the passenger door).

After the fun in the mud we decided to venture of the dirt track down a little side road in order to get an amazing lake view.

The name wasn't on the map - sorry

We thought this may be a good canoeing spot but there are just so many lakes to choose from…

After lunch it was time to venture into the park itself. The road from one end of the park to the other is 14km! We decided to venture into the woods and see if we could spot some bears (all we saw was a teeney tiny chipmunk). We did however get some good photos…

Shame we’d already had lunch…

  1. Looks like a fun day, great photos. Not sure if your Mum will appreciate the reciprocal eating ploy.
