So I stayed in another room at the same hotel on Monday. This room had a Lawren Harris and a JEH MacDonald above the beds. I asked the front desk clerk in the morning about the paintings when I was checking out. He didn't have clue what I was talking about. lol

My apologies.  My comments were uncalled for. 

But the whole bit of numbered reproductions of a long dead artist is a bit of a scam.  Numbered prints produced and individually signed by the artist can be a legitimate piece of  art; often the original is destroyed to ensure that the edition is truly limited.  But if the artist is not directly involved in each copy, it is just a reproduction no matter how high quality it might be or whether it is numbered.
 

I agree with watch out for scams,but this isn't  new hotel. These weren't hung yesterday. No doubt come with some sort of verification. I took closeup photos of the numbered part but cannot find them on my PC now.

Thanks for he info.My terminology may be wrong, but these were numbered. 48 out of 700 for example. Reproductions are not usually numbered from my understanding. Though of course I am not an expert.

So last year I stayed at the Ramada Hotel in St. John's Newfoundland. I didn't notice in the evening, but when I awoke in the morning and opened the curtains, I discovered I was sleeping under a numbered print of The West Wind, above the other bed was another Thomson print, Autumn Foliage. 

It was pretty cool I thought. Also was thinking about forgoing my security deposit. lol kidding.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. But, yes, I always leave my backpack at my campsite when out and about, backcountry or not.

When i visit parks I take public transportation or hire and outfitter to drive me. I go into the backcountry but sometimes you can't get in there on time, or you have to come out early. 

One time I came out two days early. I was using the Park Bus so I just booked a normal campsite. All I had was mt backpack, not even a tent. I bring a tarp but only set it up when needed. So if I leave my campsite, I could have it stolen from me?

I slept in that lean-to back in 1987. There was a rope swing there also. Probably etched something inside.

Hi all. Question about the WUBT but didn't want to start a new thread seeing this was at the top.

In Jeff's Map, it shows at the beginning of the trailhead near highway 60 that the area may flood in the spring. Is that the trail itself flooding, or does that have to do with the canoe route going through there?

Thanks.
