Along The Montreal River
The fall colors up here in northern Ontario are late this year. I arrived at Sawpit Bay, Lake Superior, late afternoon on September 16. Sawpit Bay has a number of campsites on crown land that are free. It was not long before the campsite was set up, supper started to the sound of waves crashing upon the beach. One of my goals was to explore the Montreal River up the highway.
The Montreal River is a large river with a number of large dams at various locations going inland. Windmills have been going up at a steady pace, thus the need for more and more roads in the back country. This creates more opportunities for photographing.Therefore I was able to explore along the river where ever I could. The first two days were lost due to rain and one thunderstorm overnight Strong winds prevailed. It was not till the evening of the September 21 that I was able to capture any decent photographic work.
The above photo was at a location that I discovered on the Montreal River. I had previously found this location early in my trip by driving a short piece off the main gravel road down to the river’s edge. It turned out to be a nice campsite with a good place to put a boat in. The wind had finally gone quiet after six days. The river here was like a piece of grass. To finally get to capture a photo.
Well that is it for this week. Thank you everyone for stopping by. So until next time, happy trails.
