Yesterday we decided to take the day off and get away for a few hours.

Since the fall colours are just starting we headed north to Algonquin Park.

By the time we arrived it was lunch time and Lake of Two Rivers was a perfect stop for a picnic lunch.

Then it over to the visitor center  to see what new displays had been added.

I was delighted to see new siding on the building as it had been looking a little shabby the last few years.

Algonquin Park has a rich history in the logging industry and the white pine was shipped from here to England to be used as masts on their wooden ships.

Finally it was time to tackle the hike up to Lookout Point. The trail was excellent but steep and we took a few breaks to enjoy the fauna as we hiked.

It was late in the afternoon when we reluctantly headed back to the truck and our trip home.

Still another week before colours are at their best so we may be back.

Hope you get a chance to hike the trails wherever you live. Fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors.
