I was finally able to get up to Muskoka this past weekend after being away for a month. For some reason life just keeps getting in the way. I was curious to see how the water levels were as we move into the spring thaw. It appears the lakes are not as high as last year around this time even though we have had almost as much snow. This is a shot of the Bala Falls with the water flowing out of Lake Muskoka down the Moon River and into Georgian Bay.
As I hiked down the rocks I found this abandoned boat resting on the sunny shore.
This old stone fireplace was originally part of a small cabin that was built in the 1920’s.
It sits peacefully by the lake ready to rekindle those friends and family outdoor gatherings we all cherish.
It won’t be long now.

As you drive around in Muskoka or anywhere within the Canadian Shield areas you will see these rock cuts with giant icicles oozing out of them. This only takes place during winter of course but they do tend to hang on for a bit into the warmer spring weather. This photo was taken on Highway # 169 between Glen Orchard and Bala, Ontario.
