"They might not be good enough to print and enlarge, but for screen purposes I think it's fine"

Yep... I agree with trippythings... just a little illustration below why pocket camera P&Ss and maybe cell phone cameras might be good enough. Zooming in on the blown-up outlined area shows detail (a duck blind) not visible in the first photo, so "for screen purposes" here, there is more detail captured by the camera than can be resolved on the screen. Higher camera resolution won't make a difference since usually screen resolution is what's limiting what can and can't be seen.

(The camera is an Olympus TG-820 waterproof P&S, in reviews, image test patterns were judged to be good enough to be rated "sharp".)

PS... opening the photos in a new tab will produce larger versions

Reminds me of the north end of Burntroot, just south of the portage to Robinson looking east.

Just to loop back to ATVenture's question about gas augers, here's the only rule about them I was able to find, from Section 21(2) of Ontario Regulation 347/07:
"From April 1 to Thanksgiving, no person shall possess a chain saw, power saw, power ice auger, gasoline generator or similar device in an area operated for interior camping in Algonquin Provincial Park."

So basically, if it's before April 1, go for it. If after, you'd have to contend with the esoteric question of what an "area operated for interior camping" means... is that an interior campsite? A lake on which there are interior campsites? Any place not within a campground, day-use facility or road right-of-way? Strangely it's not in the definitions section of the regulation, though several similar terms are.

Just figures.  The one time I know the answer, I don't see the thread until it's too late.

Yup, recognized the view and stump right away.
