This past August long weekend was an especially fun one. My boyfriend and I escaped the city and met up with some friends at Nutimik Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park.
On the way back from camping in Hecla I decided to stop in Winnipeg Beach for the night and save a bit of money on camping passes. My family has a cabin there, and it'd definitely been a long time since I'd been there. The place wasn't open for the season yet so we camped out in the backyard and made the most of it.
The last few years for my birthday I've made it a tradition to exit the city and go explore a new part of Canada I haven't been yet. One year I went to Calgary and Banff, another I ventured through Sleeping Giant National Park, and another year took a shorter trek up to Riding Mountain National Park.
