Muskoka-Algonquin Fall 2015 iPhone Shots

Just some quick shots from last weekend on my iPhone, yes that's moose in the bottom shot and there's more to come with them on a later post.

Friday morning I went up to to Huckleberry Lookout between Bracebridge and Port Carling to meet  up with my friend Helen Grose , she lives most of the week up in Muskoka and knows the neighbourhood cold. She suggested for the gang to meet up at Huckleberry Lookout as a spot to shoot some landscapes, something different. I was challenged at first, more so with the light, it was supposed to be partly cloudy but instead we got mostly cloud with the rare patch of blue.

Later on I cut across along highway 117 through Baysville stopping by at the Lake of Bays Brewery (sorry no photos), they make fine beer and along that highway I got shots of the Lake of Bays which then took me through Dorset.

I was happy to arrive at Billie Bear resort, to me that's paradise, the weekend saw a return to the Bat Lake Trail this time in the morning and lat…

Back to Muskoka and Algonquin Park This Weekend

Early tomorrow morning I'm headed back north to paradise for a long weekend of photography, a good hike in Algonquin Park and hang out with good friends. The fall colours report for Algonquin Park says it's still about 50% green still. That's ok, there are still great photos to be taken. Get out to nature and enjoy it, colours aside I think it's going to be great fall. See you next week.

A Day Up in Elora Part One

Getting closer to the end of the Summer as people usually see it and I needed another day trip, my original plans for Prince Edward County got cancelled due to a friend's family health emergency so I pointed my car Northwest back to Elora instead of East along the 401.

Elora is a culinary hotspot deep in Wellington County roughly 20 minutes north of Guelph. Now if you are looking for a nice place to eat, I can recommend the Shepherd's Pub or Wreckless Eric's both are a great place for lunch and I can't recommend the Maclean's Pale Ale enough. I will recommend taking the Elora Culinary Walking Tour , think of it as a tasting menu for the town.

Sadly the Elora Mill Inn is still closed for renovations, the new owners seem to be distracted with other ventures as a result the village is quieter than it should be. I stayed there 15 years ago with my girlfriend at the time on a long weekend package and enjoyed myself. There are other places to stay through a quick search…
