Fall: Deep River Waterfront and Rapides des Joachims

2019 October 21 and 24

As we mentioned in a previous post, the fall colours this year strike us as being very vivid. Here are some recent photos from along the Deep River waterfront and from Rapides des Joachims (Swisha). The photos from Swisha are from the boat launch and from the Dumoine Road Bridge (ZEC Bridge).

October 21 was bright with a slight overcast whereas the morning of October 24 had some dramatic mist.

Fall Colours on Grand Lake

2019 October 09

We went for paddle from Achray to the top half of Grand Lake in Algonquin Park. The fall colours this year are amazing -- to the extent that our photos look fake. The day started off near 0C with mist, but turned into a gorgeous fall day, and only a slight breeze.

Bog along the Achray Road

2019 September 20

We have long been intrigued by the bog near the intersection of the Achray Road and McManus Lake Road in Algonquin Park; it has a very boreal look. Here are some photos (with cotton grass).
