LEADER: J Bruce Walton
LEADER BIO: Bruce has been exploring the Algonquin highlands and surrounding area since he first attended the Haliburton Scout Reserve as a young boy. Returning many times, year round, to hike, paddle, cross-country ski and snowshoe with his own family he loves to just wander to see what there is to see. Now with a rustic cabin base along the Kennisis River, he can access this trail system right outside his back door. Bruce has been taking photos for many years and the highlands are one of his favourite places to explore with his camera. He hopes others will bring along their cameras to share in the opportunity to capture a piece of the highlands in image and memory.
