Rob Stimpson's talk for this speaker series is a combination of two of his renowned subjects, Wild Ontario and the Spell of Algonquin. This presentation will look at Rob's photos throughout Ontario - from Polar Bear Provincial Park to 1000 islands, with many funny stories and people he encountered on his adventures. Living 15 minutes from the west gate to Algonquin Park allows Rob to frequent the area. Images, stories and places that he likes to hike and paddle in the park are the order of the day!
