Frontenac Park Hiking Trip

         The hiking trip was the best camping trip I have had in a while! It was planned out thoroughly and preformed with positive attitudes. The longest hike was the hardest part of the trip but was still fun. My group (Emmy, Emily, Sophia, and Fatima) stayed at camp site 12 on the first night, and it was amazing! We had a great site with a great view of the small lake, which we saw a beaver multiple times that was building a dam. The other groups that stayed with us joined us at our site for the fire and some well-deserved marshmallows. Bed time was early since we knew we had a long day ahead of us. When we woke up, we had a perfect view of the sun rise. We packed up quickly to go and meet the other group at their site and started the next hike. On the second day we stayed at camp site 4 which again had an amazing view of big salmon lake. We saw plenty of wild life their including snakes, water beetles, chipmunks, and loons. We had an amazing stir fry that night that was home made with fresh ingredients. We played games and had nice fire. We went to bed around 8:30 because I had hurt my knee. In the morning my group and I got a head start on the hike and met the other campers at the parking spot. It was a great trip overall!                                                                           Our menu was well thought out and planned. We had lots of varieties of snacks and beverage flavours. Our meals were healthy and very tasty! On day one we had whole wheat grilled cheese and hotdogs. On day two we had an Asian stir fry with garlic, leek, bok choy, broccoli, onion, and red peppers with soya sauce. All on top of rice! Everyone loved the stir fry! Our snacks included granola bars, all types of nuts and trail mixes, protein bars, beef jerky, sunflower seeds, and a little bit of candy! It’s safe to say that none of my group members went hungry!                                                               Overall the trip was a huge success and I loved being there. It was amazing experience and a ton of fun. I was well prepared with my clothes, food, and my pack! Which made it an awesome trip!
