Fall Colours: Algonquin Park

October 7th, and the leaves are just past peak colour in Algonquin Park.

And the vistas along the Centennial Ridges, 10.4km Trail were, each one, more breathtaking than the previous, all looking west over the crowded park.

Benoir Lake

This august took us to yet another cottage, this time on Benoir Lake, on the southern edge of Algonquin park. The mornings greeted us with beautiful mist rising over the water, while the were afternoons with warming sun.

One of the hikes was a gorgeous walk; the trail following an old road through a Red Pine plantation, then becoming a footpath and a bit of a scramble to a rock point north of High Falls. From the end of the trail we had a view of the top of the rapids upstream of High Falls as well as a view downstream towards the falls… and of course a treasure hunt.

…and our collection of treasures grew.
