The Adirondacks Part 1: Lake Durant, Sawyer Mt. & Buttermilk Falls

Hello again. On the weekend of August 24, 2013, we were supposed to go to Killbear Provincial Park for our second camping trip of the summer. Since we've been there before numerous times, on a last-minute spur I looked around on Google maps for other possible destinations instead. I specifically looked around in New York state because I've seen some blog posts about how beautiful upstate NY can be. That's where I found the Adirondack Park. As soon as I saw the pictures of the mountains, I was hooked--I had to go there.

Camping at Balsam Lake

In Canada, there's a long weekend (Civic Holiday) on the first week of August. We had no plans to go anywhere until the Friday before the long weekend. Looking for campsites in Ontario for the long weekend on such short notice is pretty difficult. Most campsites were not vacant so we took whatever we can get. Luckily, we found a promising "walk-in" site at Balsam Lake Provincial Park.
