Author: Kevin Rollason

Author: Robyn Hanson

My next destination was Hecla/Grindstone Provincial Park, or specifically Hecla, as almost everyone in Manitoba calls it. Hecla refers to the part of the park on Hecla Island, located off the west coast of Lake Winnipeg. The Grindstone part is located on the mainland, which I sadly wasn’t able to visit. In any case, I was curious to check out Hecla, as everyone I had encountered spoke so fondly of it. It seemed to be a popular nature retreat for Winnipeggers, and as a nature enthusiast, I couldn’t wait
