Land of Lakes and Forests: Lake Superior Camping Trip

Rocky shorelines, wind swept trees, endless lakes and rivers – these are the icons of the Canadian wilderness and Lake Superior has all of these aplenty.  For us it was a 9-hour drive from the Toronto area, but the drive is worth it as you get access to this rugged, wild and sparsely populated region of Canada.

If you need to be reminded why Queensland is a place to love, check out this awesome video.
