Last week, we traveled to the 1000 Islands area for a few days of relaxation. We went camping and found a lovely spot right on the edge of the St. Lawrence River. Our campsite was just to the left of this huge bridge which leads to Hill Island. We noticed a bit of road traffic on the bridge the first night, but after that it wasn't a problem. We packed our large nylon, modern tent, which was large enough for our queen sized air mattress, a small portable table and two chairs.
Despite the clouds coming through and the fast, fading light, the views from up high were incredible. It was a great way to really see what the area was like. From the ground, you don't really see the islands or have an immediate idea of the immense size of the St. Lawrence River.
Every morning, this fellow woke us up. He or she cawed and screamed as the sun was coming up, conversing with what sounded to be a much younger and much whinier crow! It was the most effective alarm clock I've had in a while.
