Two explorers have completed a nearly 600km international journey.
John Allport and John Davis recreated the journey of Alice the Moose recently. The animal was released in Adirondack Park, New York in 1998 by a group of researchers. After that Alice travelled to Canada and made her way to Algonquin Park before dying of unknown causes in 2001. To recreate the experience, Allport started in Algonquin and Davis in Adirondack. The two met in the middle in Landsdowne.
David Miller, Executive Director of the Algonquin to Adirondack Collaborative says the biggest challenge of the 15-day journey was some of the unexpected terrain.
Despite the challenging terrain, Miller also says the journey went very well for the most part.
The journey concluded with both explorers meeting at Wellesley Island just south of Lansdowne. This journey is part of the creation of the proposed A2A trail, connecting Algonquin and the Adirondacks. You can find more details on that project here.
