Ice pictures from April 10

Welcome to Algonquin Park.
Would you like to ski? Snowshoe? Canoe...not!

These pictures are a few days old but I'm sorry to report that things haven't changed much. Local river levels are VERY high right now, so lakes like Rock and Two Rivers should have some significant open leads at the river mouth. The Oxtongue River has opened a long lead into Oxtongue Lake but the rest of the lake is solid and white. All photos taken by Jerry Schmanda on his recent journey from Oxtongue Lake to Opeongo Lake. Hopefully we will have more images on Monday or Tuesday - stay tuned!

Canoe Lake, from the beach by the permit office
(beach, what beach?)

Cache Lake, looking towards Bartlett Lodge

Lake of Two Rivers, looking east to the Centennial Ridges

The cliffs on Costello Lake, near Hwy 60

Jerry's first view of the Opeongo Store this season
(hmmm, opening April 25?)

Canada goose looking for open water on Costello Creek
(and maybe thinking about heading back south...)
