I hope the beginning of this paragraph starts at the right point this time....here is another series of shots taking last Monday, March the 7th. Some are from the Big Pines hiking trail, one is of the kids who were Ski Joring and the others were just scenes taken along the corridor near the West End of the park. I don't think we will see this kind of snowfall again for this winter....but I am just so thrilled to be in the right place at the right time to shoot on such a perfect day!!!!!
I do not understand why my write ups are showing up in such weird formats.....so sorry!!!!! I also forgot to mention about that little log cabin. It's the warm-up cabin the Park prof ides for cross-country skiers and snowshoe enthusiast who want to warm up after a run...it's has a wood stove and picnic tables inside....a Great! place to enjoy a lunch or snack after your winter activities. In the summer it's used for the mountain bike trails....

This is something new I'm trying, I have never posted more than one image at a time so Please bear with me....I hope this works out!!!! Last Monday as we drove through Algonquin we stopped at the parking lot which accesses the dogsled trails and one of the many hiking trails. The fresh fallen heavy snow fall was just too gorgeous not to shoot. I took a short walk along the hiking trail and was lost in the beauty of the deep forest covered in it's late winter blanket. Also the contrast of white blanketed trees and blue sky were breathtaking....Our winter will soon come to an end as I look out to a heavy rain fall today, I will enjoy looking back at these images and remember that Special Day in my favorite Park " Algonquin".
I'm sorry there seems to be a typo at the beginning of my paragraph....more to learn I guess!!!!!

We travelled through Algonquin Park on Monday after a stormy weekend, and what a treat!!!!It was another Winter Wonderland and when we stopped at the parking area where the dogsled teams usualy start their tours we were fortunate to meet up with a couple who were Ski Joring with their teams of Huskies and Golden Retriever. The Golden was just a pup in training, but the Huskies were so vocal and excitied to get on their way. I'm sure you must be strong and fit to keep up with these energetic dog teams!!!!
