Barron River between St Andrews Lake and High Falls Lake

2019 June 19

The Barron River between St. Andrews Lake and High Falls Lake is very scenic. Tom Thomson painted at least painting along this stretch of river: " Woodland Waterfall" and "Autumn, Petawawa". Here are some photos from our recent visit.

One feature that we particularly wanted to photograph was the old pointer at the foot of St. Andrews Lake. Sadly, it seems to be gone.

High Falls Lake Forest Fire after almost 3 years

2019 June 19

On one of the days of our stay on St. Andrews Lake, we travelled through High Falls Lake. We were quite taken by the aftermath of the 2016 High Falls Lake Forest Fire. Immediately following the fire, it didn't look that bad. However, in the interim, many (most?) of the still standing trees have died. Given the minimal soil and bare rock, we expect it will take a long time for this area to recover. Here are some photos:

St Andrews Lake to St Francis Lake via Rouge Lake

2019 June 18

We recently spent three night camping on St. Andrews Lake in Algonquin Park. On one of the days we travelled to St. Francis Lake via Rouge Lake. In spite of the portage into St. Francis Lake being unmaintained, it was pretty straight forward. There were a few minor blow-downs but nothing you couldn't step over or around. But it was also clear that this is not a high traffic area.
