OK, so it didn't snow...

But the SUN came out, after what seemed liked an eternity of cloudy, rainy September days. Wind and rain have knocked down some leaves but the colours are still pretty nice and, hopefully, will hang in there for the upcoming long weekend.

Don't forget, if you can't get up to Algonquin Park, you can always see the fall colours from space. Regular followers of this blog will remember that we recommend the NOAA satellite image for the Great Lakes region for following ice-out progress. These images, updated several times daily, are also a useful tool for checking on the advance of fall colours in southern Ontario. Here is a snapshot from today. You can clearly see Lake of Bays in the lower left corner.
