  ALGONQUIN PARK: Canoe, Joe, Teepee, Littledoe, Tom Thomson, Bartlett, Tom Thomson, Littledoe, Baby Joe, Little Joe, Joe, Canoe Lakes

This is another trip that I did with the CASS Canoe Club, Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, 1999.

A park map is available from the Friends of Algonquin Park. Go here to see the portion of this map which covers this trip. Also, check out the Chrismar Adventure Map Algonquin 1 Corridor North, or the standard 1:50 000 government topo., 31 E/10. I used the Chrismar Map for this trip and was very happy with it. The scale is 1:80 000, and it is printed on waterproof plastic.
