We live on the doorstep of Algonquin Park and always enjoy a visit when the fall colours are at their best. Unfortunately this year most of the leaves had fallen before we arrived. Nevertheless it was still a great day to be up in the park.
Can you see the moose walking across the road? Click on the photo for a better view.
Our first stop was the art gallery
where they have an excellent display commemorating the life and work of Tom Thomson a famous Canadian painter who visited and worked in Algonquin Park a hundred years ago.
Next was a hike along the Hemlock Trail a short hike of only 3.5 km and rather easy if you have strong legs.
I was glad to find this bench and
enjoy the view of Jack Lake.
Time for a little nourishment after all that walking. The beach at Lake of Two Rivers was closed because of the algae growth so we just found an empty campsite and enjoyed the afternoon.
Last stop was the visitor's center and a view across the valley. Maybe next year the colours will be better.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
