The Camping Trip

This past Canada Day weekend I went with my friends and family on a camping trip to Algonquin and I was really excited. Considering it was my first time I didn’t know what to expect but that just made me want to get there faster. 
I had heard from my friend that bears lurked in the forest that we were going to but when I got there it seemed like a really nice place to spend the next 4 days… other than the fact that Algonquin was swarming with mosquitoes. 
At Algonquin I got to solve a mystery about a bird called a Black-Capped Chickadee and why it disappeared. I was very interesting as I have never even heard of this species of bird before. Algonquin also gave me the opportunity to learn about loggers at a Loggers museum. A logger is also known as a lumberjack. At the museum we were taken through an open forest where they displayed a variety of machines and axes loggers used. After the Loggers museum my friends and I decided to take a break. So we went for a swim in the lake. Despite the fact that the water was FREEZING, it was awesome once I got used to it. Another highpoint of the trip was roasting marshmallows. Boy were they good & I asked for s’more! 
Camping was a great experience and I would love to go again. :D
