This is the last in a series of 5 posts about our family vacation to the wilderness of Algonquin from July 4-11, 2009.
One of my favourite things about camping is eating ‘camping food’ – getting those special treats and items for your time away from home. I remember as kid, my favourite camping treat was sugary cereal in those tiny boxes. We only got them when we were camping. Wilderness camping is a little different as you are lifting and carrying your food through each portage so you have to think a bit about the weight of your weekly food supply. There’s also no cooler with ice in it so you can’t take very many perishables. The other thing about wilderness camping is that you have to hang your food high in a tree so as not to attract bears and you don’t leave any food out of that food pack!
