Another string-lit tree, what in the heck is going on here?

By 6:30am I was already headed down the road and decided to pull over and try to bushwhack to the campsite on Little Norway Lake. I made it to where the campsite was supposed to be, but it was nowhere to be found. It must have been a long time since it was last used.

Little Norway Swamp.. I mean, Lake.. Little Norway Lake

Time to go home - but I'll be back in just a few weeks!

Random pond along Basin Depot Road

On the way back down, I noticed several trees along the trail had string lights wrapped around them – almost as if to guide someone up the trail at night. Not what I like to see but I have to admit, this probably looked really cool at night. Maybe it was a surprise for someone special? Big if true! 

The romantic side of me hopes this is a set-up for a proposal, and the LNT side of me hopes this was cleaned up after

The Barry's Bay Tim's is my favorite of all the Tim's - because of this canoe and this canoe alone

Back in the car and continuing down Basin Depot road, I passed a small marsh and the sun was just peeking over the tree line, so I stopped for a couple photos.

One of well over two-dozen trees with string lights wrapped around it

Whispering Winds Lookout - AKA: The Egg Rock Trail

Nothing but green hills, and pine. Lots of pine.

Shaping up to be another beautiful day - why am I leaving?

The connecting creek between Stringers Lake & Couchain Lake

On the way back down, I noticed several trees along the trail had string lights wrapped around them – almost as if to guide someone up the trail at night. Not what I like to see but I have to admit, this probably looked really cool at night. Maybe it was a surprise for someone special? Big if true! 

Packed up & Left no Trace!

Moon over Buck Lake

Totem pole at the East Gate

At 7:15am I was at the trailhead to the Egg Rock Trail. This is a deceiving little trail – it looks so short and simple on the map, but the elevation gain isn’t something to take lightly. In other words, it was one hell of a climb! Absolutely worth it though, especially at that time of morning. 

Day 4: Little Norway Lake & Egg Rock Trail 

Woke up at 5:30am to a quiet and still morning. The moon still hanging over Buck Lake and the birds were beginning to sign their daily songs. I skipped breakfast and coffee so I could pack up and be on my way. ​

Looking South-ish at Stringers Lake

If Jeff's Map is correct, this is where the campsite should be. I bushwhacked to this spot and could not find any evidence of a campsite
