I too through my hat into the ring and congratulate you on a superb report. My Canadian experiences have been enjoyable, but I don't expect to see big trees in Quebec or Ontario. There are a few places where white pines get to fairly impressive sizes, but those locations are in southern Canada. Interestingly, naturalists in places like Algonquin Provincial Park are often minimally informed about their pockets of old growth. Not sure why that has proven to be the case. The best old growth I've so far encountered in APP has been on trails that are not advertised for the old growth. I think people tend to notice what they have been conditioned to expect.
