Oxtongue River- Ragged Falls Provincial Park

To celebrate the peak of fall colour season, we headed up to Algonquin Park. Unfortunately, in order to actually get into the park and get a permit, the traffic was backed up for 4 kilometers.

Yes, you read that right.

Instead, we turned around and checked out Oxtongue River- Ragged Falls Provincial Park just down the road... and let's just say, we weren't disappointed! The colours were magnificent, the river was pristine, and the falls were a-roaring! We had a fantastic afternoon and enjoyed what just might have been the best weather of the year so far!

We made some lunch by the river and then took a hike along the river bank. After our hike we stopped at Algonquin Outfitters and drooled over checked out their outdoor gear. Although Brynn was not feeling well, and couldn't keep anything down all day, we (and she) were happy campers and are so thankful that we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

Always with the tongue...
