Fall Colors at Algonquin Park and Oxtongue Lake

Fall Colors at Algonquin Park and Oxtongue Lake

We took a drive up from Toronto, Ontario on October 1, 2012, to checkout the fall colors in the Algonquin Park and Oxtongue Lake areas.  From atop the Dorset tower, the view of the color sure proved the drive worthwhile.  According to the local people with whom we spoke,  this was the best fall color seen in this area in 10 years.

  • Thank you so much for sharing these images. My family had a cottage in Dorset until my stepmother sold it after my father died, and I still grieve over it never so much as during the Cavalcade of Colour.

    • I am glad that you had a chance to revisit the wonderful fall colour in Haliburton by viewing our photographs. I can understand your sadness at losing the family cottage because it is a very special area, as you said, especially during the marvelous show put on by the changing fall foliage. These past two years, it has been outstanding…the best we have seen in decades. Or maybe we just happened to be in that area at the perfect time to see the autumn colours at their best. A visit to the area would be well worth your while.

  • Amazing…I want to visit this place

    • Thanks for your comment. When you visit the areas of Algonquin Provincial Park, Oxtongue Lake and Dorset, you will not be disappointed. Each season has something special to offer.

feedback welcome
