Keep Out!

Way back when, I think in the 1950s, you could purchase land on the islands in Parry Sound.  Several years ago, I am not sure when, the Canadian government declared much of this area "Queen's Land."  This would be the equivalent to a National Park in the states, I think.  Anyone that owned property during this declaration was able to keep their property, which is great for the current and future generations.  However, this gave permission for the general public to begin camping and hiking throughout this area.

When we were hiking back from the totem pole to the cottage you see in the distance, we came upon this sign.  If there were actually grass anywhere on this island, I would have named this post "Stay Off My Lawn!"
