Algonquin Park Fall Colours Photo Tour – 2018

Join us for our annual fall colours photo tour to Algonquin Provincial Park. The dates of the tour will be Thursday Oct. 11 to Sunday Oct. 14, 2018. The fall colours may be slightly past peak at this time however there is always an abundance of sights and wildlife viewing to occupy our time. Our base of operations will be the Algonquin East Gate Motel or the Mew Lake Campground for those choosing to camp.

The tour will be lead by Peter Ferguson and Dave Lindey. As always this is an unguided event. You may choose to join in with one of the leaders or photograph on your own as you take in the beauty that the park offers during this time of the year.

Do not delay in making arrangements as this is a busy time of the year in the park. Visit the Algonquin East Gate Motel website for information regarding the accommodations and rates. We can make further suggestions regarding accommodations if required.

If you are planning on joining us, please send me an email so that I can add you to the mailing list to keep you up to date on our plans for the weekend.

We hope to see you there.
