Opeongo Lake opened up on Friday, April 21. This is the earliest ice-out in several years and we are ready to go!
If Opeongo is open, it is pretty safe to assume that all other lakes in Algonquin Park are open or will be in a day or so. As you can see from the picture of Ragged Falls above, water levels are extremely high, so be careful out there.
Launching the water taxi at Opeongo Lake - high water but no ice!
I took some nice people from France on a FAM tour on Friday. FAM is a travel industry term for "familiarization" and allows travel and tour operators to visit the places they send their customers. The catch is that they generally get to do these tours in the off-season.
