The North beckons

Sometimes you need to rediscover just how amazing Canada truly is and the natural magnificence of the Province of Ontario within it! On last Fall’s pandemic escape my friend Cheryl and I drove NW along the breathtaking shores of Lakes Huron and Superior…it seemed the roads and forests unfolded forever before us. The innumerable lakes never ending with great Gitchigumi clearly a freshwater sea. And the colours – angry grey waters, blazing Autumn splendour, pines evergreen, pink granite and brilliant blue skies.

It was such a feast for our senses so how could we not explore more of our great, wild backyard this fall again.

    Had a chance once to fly over the Algoma-Sault Ste Marie area once at this time of year and the whole area was ablaze in autumn colours.

    My very favourite time of year, when Mother Nature delicately paints the most spectacular picture for eyes to behold. We are a little behind here in Southern Ontario but I suspect over the next few weeks, our trees will be ablaze with colour!

  7. Beautiful! As covid stalls international travel, we are are turned to see what’s right under our own noses, a stunningly beautiful country. Enjoy!

    How wonderful to get out and enjoy such beautiful nature! You brought back memories of a trip I took across Canada 42 years ago. Me and my Siberian Husky, bouncing along in my little VW bug! It rates as one of my favorite trips… ever! Canada is such a beautiful country. 🇨🇦
