Lake Travers in Algonquin Park

Looking north from the middle of Lake Traverse, 2016. The trees have grown up somewhat in the last 40 years, but otherwise things look about the same. It was not quite as nice a day as forty years previously, but there were no whirlwinds waiting to attack us either.

The water level is lower in 2016 than in 1976 since there is no longer a functioning dam at Big Thompson Rapids, but that is not particularly noticeable in this photo.
