Somewhere in Canada

GPS Coordinates from interesting places somwhere in Canada

After the success of posting the GPS Coordinates for the Algonquin Park, we decided to continue and publish coordinates from our trip to the west coast.

We plan to grow this list with Canadian points of interest such as parks, attractions and places that may not be on the front page of travel guides. One such example is the Batchawana Bay Provincial Park link. We would normally drive passed the place, but it was time for a break. Now it is in our list of stops when we're up there the next time, ready to go for a swim in Lake Superior.
