Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario is a wonderful escape, no matter what the season. But in autumn, when the trees change colour, it’s simply spectacular.
Rich, Sue and I used to make the 200 or so mile trip to Algonquin quite regularly. Yet with one thing or another, it’s been several years since we were last there. So a couple of months ago, we made a firm plan to rectify this oversight and go up for the fall colours.
The first weekend of October, we headed north. And the further we went, the less green the trees became. Had we left it too late?!
The answer was a resounding, ‘No!’ In fact, we arrived just a day or two after the official ‘peak colours’. But there’s a sting in the tail of this tale…
A few months ago, I wrote a post about Rich uncharacteristically putting his camera in the overhead bin on a flight from Canada to Britain, only to be presented with the most amazing views of central London on our approach into Heathrow airport (click here to read it). Well, this time he went one step further.
Three hours away from home, less than an hour from our destination, Rich realised that his camera was still sitting on his desk, back at the house! We briefly considered heading back for it, but a big storm was forecast to strike the area within a few hours, and it was unlikely we’d make it back before the rain arrived.
