Hidden Gem – McGregor Bay, Ontario

This hidden gem was taken by Vlad C. in McGregor Bay, Ontario and captures a quiet sunrise – the perfect time to look back on the highlights of a beautiful summer!

McGregor Bay is a particularly beautiful, rugged area. Surrounded by the white quartzite of the La Cloche Mountains (once higher than the Rocky Mountains!), the Bay is dotted with islands and shoals that make a wonderful scenic vacation setting for those who enjoy an unspoiled northern experience.

The Group of Seven created many of their captivating portrayals of the Canadian Shield here and in other nearby areas. This painting by Arthur Lismer captures the rugged beauty of the region.
