Last Friday, Nuno, took an unexpected day off work. Our girls didn't have school that day and the local fall color report listed that the foliage at Algonquin Park was at its peak for viewing, sooo my darling husband whisked us off for a surprise overnight getaway! If you've never heard of Algonquin Park, I can tell you that it's probably the most famous provincial park in Ontario, as well as one of the best places to admire fall foliage at its peak. Tourists come from all over the world at this time of year to see the vibrant red and sugar maples of this region. We are lucky we live just a wee two-hour drive away. It makes for a perfect day trip!
I would love to take you along on our leaf peeping drive through Algonquin Park. Would you like to join us? There's plenty of room for all! Nuno will drive and all we have to do is sit back and enjoy the scenery. It's a perfect day for it; endless blue skies and warm sunshine! You don't even need to bring your sweater; just a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Have I convinced you? Yes? Well then, hop in and make yourself comfortable. Here we gooooo!
The fall colors along both sides of the Highway 60 Corridor are so vibrant!
And through the magic of the Internet...
Here we are at the park gate, safe and sound. Yippee! Let's get out and have a little stretch. That's better. Let's make our way, shall we?
Our first stop is less than 10 km into the park. Look at this view! Doesn't it take your breath away? The lake is so still and smooth as glass. The sky is the prettiest shade of blue and the fall colors are spectacular, don't you agree?
Look at this splendid scene! It looks like something out of the cover of a magazine!
Ahh! This incredible vista was worth the effort, don't you think?
We should probably head on back to the car now. My feet are getting tired and I'm sure yours are too! Thank you so much for coming along with me. I had such a good time! I hope you did, too!
