Why This Canoe Trip Was Magical [video, photography]

One of the best things about living in Muskoka is the access to wilderness places. It’s pretty awesome to be in the backcountry within 30 minutes from our nest. There is a place that we have been going to since we moved to the area just over a year ago, and on Friday we decided…
