Keira was excited when we told her they were going to one of Ontario's largest nature and wildlife preserve Algonquin Provincial Park Achray...





He told her they were going to the Barron Canyon Trail that would give us a view of the Barron River from high above...


At first glance, Keira thought it doesn't look like a cliff...


But all signs pointed to the cliff. So she knew that she had to stay on the leash with daddy the whole time which was okay because she was a little scared...


They hiked uphill until finally, Keira had her first glimpse of the canyon...

It was breathtaking! The long stretch of the Barron River nestled safely in the canyon glistened in the sun and the rain had stopped just in time...

Keira couldn't believe how high up she was! She's a mountain dog and she runs in the mountains all the time but this was the highest Keira had ever been in her life!

Then they looked down...and that was scary.

It was the first time she's ever seen water she couldn't swim in...

The river was pretty but it was long and so far down...


It looked like it would swallow Keria whole...

The hike out of the trail was downhill and they were sure to keep their footing...

They found a wonderful Visitor's Register Book filled with the names of all the other people and dogs who had hiked the trail before them. People came from all over the world just to see Barron Canyon. Keira left her mark and if you go there today you can see they were there October 5, 2014.

The hike was over and Keira was tired. Time to go home and relax after an amazing day. She and daddy made plans to return to Algonquin Park soon...
