If I lived in Kingston, Ontario, I think I would find it very difficult not to go up to Frontenac Provincial Park every weekend. One of the many places in Ontario with breathtaking fall colours.

Life on a Rock

Two of my favorite things in the world are White Pine trees and glacier erratics; so this shot kills two birds with one stone.

I was lucky enough to find this White Pine far in the back country of Algonquin Park.  The size of the roots on this tree were enormous and amazing to see up close.

Drifting at Neys Provincial Park

Driftwood at Neys Provincial Park

Along the north shore of Lake Superior is one of my favorite Ontario parks; Neys Provincial Park.  The park was visited frequently by The Group of  Seven and has a great mix of Canadian northern ruggedness, sandy beaches and lots of driftwood.

More information on Neys can be found at:

The Everglades of the North

The Minesing Wetlands is one of my favorite hidden gems in southern Ontario. Consider it the everglades of the north.

This 6,000 hectare area is part of the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority and is one of the most diverse undisturbed wetland tracts in Canada. It offers some fantastic canoeing and opportunities to see a large variety of flora and fauna.

More information can be found at Friends of Minesing.
