What is Canoeing in Northern Alberta like? Find out in this video.
I used the GoPro HD Hero while paddling with friends in Lakeland Provincial Park. This Provincial Park is located east of Lac La Biche, Alberta, Canada, just over three hour drive from the city of Edmonton.
We linked a number of lakes in this park into a canoe circuit with 4 portages. We paddled on Kinnaird, Jackson, McGuffin, as well as some other smaller lakes and connecting channels, and camped at beautiful backcountry campsites covering over 60 km’s over the three days spent in this beautiful park. Even had a chance to do some Pike fishing one of which ended up as dinner.
The GoPro HD camera with its chesty mount was the ideal candidate for these liquid surrounding. Entire video was shot with the GoPro Hero HD in 960p mode (1280 x 960 resolution) to capture the surroundings in “full-frame” and 170° ultra wide angle, which will explains the bent paddles .
Until the next adventure….
