A stunning celebration of Ontario's vast and diverse wilderness.
Ontario is wild. The province's more than 12 million people live in densely populated urban centers, but Ontario is larger than France and Spain combined. Over a quarter of a million lakes hold one third of the world's fresh water. No matter where you go in Ontario, you are never far from wilderness. Nobody knows this better than veteran adventurers Gary and Joanie McGuffin.
The McGuffins' Ontario is full of favorite places: rock promontory campsites where the swimming is perfect, lakes where loons and eagles nest, cliffs where peregrine falcons soar, ancient forests where only the sounds of nature are heard. Here, one can paddle whitewater rivers, sea kayak to distant granite islands, hike mountainous trails, and snowshoe the fresh forest trails left by foraging moose and wolves.
The diverse, wild beauty of Ontario is celebrated in this breathtaking collection of images taken during two decades of travel to every corner of the province.
