I left at 9 am this morning and surprisingly ran into a ton of cars on the 400 up to Barrie. From Barrie to Midland it seemed like every other car I passed had a bike on it and from Midland to Parry Sound every other car had a kayak or canoe on it. Somehow I missed the turn, surprise, surprise, it may have had something to do with the divided highway ending and big cement walls on the highway, so I just scooted right past. I kept glancing at my phone gps and the arrow just kept pointing straight so I just kept going. Somehow I missed the part where it said to turn around, it took 20 kms but I finally decided to check my map. lol. The drive was so lovely I didn't mind my wrong turn.
Here it is September 26 and the trees are barely changing until Parry Sound, even there it is a slow process as we enjoy this beautiful Indian Summer.
My next stop was Lookout Point, a 3.5 km walk to a great view of Georgian Bay. They have done a wonderful job of their pathways but I did find I was looking at my feet a ton, other than when one of the super squirrels and chipmunks who might be the nosiest critters in the forest (next to me) scampered across the leaves.
Thank goodness this little guy didn't rattle.
This will make a lovely winter home for one of the active bears in the area.
Just over 2 hours from Aurora and well worth the trip. Let's hope this beautiful weather continues and we have a spectacular fall canopy before the snow comes.
