Canada 12: Ontario's Algonquin Park; Mennonite Country

Canada  12: Ontario's Algonquin Park; Mennonite Country

For those interested in getting away from the frenetic pace of urban life, a trip to Ontario's Algonquin Park or Mennonite Country is the perfect remedy. The first stop is a large wilderness area called Algonquin Park, which was established in 1893 to protect the head waters of several Canadian rivers. Heavily forested and boasting over 930 miles of rivers and streams, the park is teeming with wildlife and offers visitors a host of wilderness activities, including canoeing, hiking, fishing, and camping. Accommodations range from the chalet style log cabins of Killarney Lodge, to the more than 100 organized camping sites throughout the park. The park also supports several businesses, including the local Portage Store and Avery & Sons paddle and snowshoe makers. Next, viewers are taken on a trip "back in time" to the Mennonite villages of Elmira, St. Jacobs, and Elora. Viewers watch artisans at work and selling their wares at the Farmer's Market, the Forge & Anvil Blacksmith, and the Hamel Broom shop. A visit with Mennonite quilters in Elmira shows how the tourist industry has had a subtle impact on traditional crafts.These two areas of Ontario clearly promote the preservation of an earlier, simpler way of life, and a strong sense of community and harmony with the environment. 03/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
