Algonquin Park and Other Places by Gary Cralle

Enjoy a travel story with visual impact about Algonquin Park and other places by Gary Cralle:
"Algonquin Provincial Park is bigger than Prince Edward Island, bigger than the state of Delaware. Established in 1893 because the land wasn’t good enough for farming, it looks marvelous as the Grand Dame of the Ontario Parks system. 
And does it have wildlife! — 279 species of birds, 45 types of mammals, 15 different reptiles, 17 amphibians and 56 varieties of fish. But that’s not all; for every variety of human there’s hiking, biking, camping, birding, picnicking, skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, winter yurts and the most beloved sport of all — canoeing."  Read more

Autumn in Algonquin

Although we’ve been experiencing summer-like temperatures all week – a few of us are still out swimming daily (water temperature is 18 degrees) – we know that the chillier weather is in the forecast.

Soon, the dining room fire will be lit every meal to welcome guests.   The bellmen will spend much of the day replenishing wood in the cabins and splitting wood for kindling.  The chef will be pondering the Thanksgiving Weekend menu.  Our bathing suits and sandals will be packed away for another season.  And guests will try to decide where best to see the magnificent changing colours of the leaves, by canoe or on a trail?

We look forward to welcoming autumn (and you!) to Algonquin Park.
