Winter is here!

Happy winter from Algonquin Outfitters!

Sometimes it is hard to believe in global warming. When I drove into Oxtongue Lake this morning, I was surprised to see that at least 75% of the main body of the lake was frozen over, an unusual event for this time of year.

Well, the ice is thick enough for a fox to make tracks on it...

The same scene taken on Nov. 24, 2006 - winter arrived late that year

While some Ontario ski resorts are opening tomorrow and southwestern Ontario is experiencing huge snowfall amounts this week (I heard that some areas south of Lake Huron will be getting up to 60 CM over the next 48 hours), our area has a nice coverage but still not enough for skiing and snowshoeing. Be patient, it will come!

Outfitter Creek is still running
Look at the strange shadows made by the canoe rack
