Hidden Gem: Opeongo Lake, Ontario

This week’s picture perfect hidden gem was taken by Alex B. on Lake Opeongo in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario. Here is how he described the moment:

It was a cloudy weekend in Algonquin. We were lucky enough to have the sun peek out of the clouds, reminding us to look around at all these colours.

The ultimate true Canadiana wilderness experience, our nation’s oldest provincial park, is as well-loved as it is vast, covering more than 7,500 square kilometres of wilderness. Famous for its vistas, backpacking, camping, fishing and canoeing, Algonquin Park’s worst-kept secret is its spectacular fall colours which peak in late September-early October in a patchwork of colour.
