Being a Canadian I am more than aware that the season of winter brings snow and cold temperatures. This winter I was fortunate enough to travel to St Petes Beach in Florida over the Christmas break. The transition from overcast skies to the warm weather of the “sunshine state” was lovely and I enjoyed my time.
Fall is inevitably upon us as the leaves begin to change into a wide array of deep reds, yellows, and oranges. Reflecting on warmer times, and when the trees were crisp in the summer air, I am reminded of summer adventures. One memory that sticks to mind is a canoe trip I did to Bon Echo Provincial Park.
Bon Echo features many lakes but we only paddled Mazinaw Lake which other than any of the Great Lakes is the deepest lake. On the southeastern shores of this lake is the incredible Mazinaw Rock which is an escarpment rising 100 metres (300 ft) out of the water.
Try to find the canoes and acknowledge the impressive size of the escarpment.
Mazinaw Rock is known for its native pictographs and is a National Historic Site of Canada
It was a great time shared with great people in an awe-inspiring landscape. Provides me with memories for the rest of the year.
