Triggers comments on fishing in Algonquin in June:

1) I want my own bug shirt.
2) There was more room in this tent last year when there were only 2 of us.
3) Don't we have a cottage we could have stayed at instead of feeding all these bugs?

While the Cabot Trail is known for scenic vistas looking out from the brink of cliffs (the kind that make your wife panic when you pull off the road into the lookout), there are places where it drops back down to sea level.
