Blueberry Lake, Temagami, Ontario

Sid and I just returned from a 3 day canoe and hiking trip to beautiful Blueberry Lake, near Temagami, Ontario. Blueberry Lake is an ecological wonder with old growth forests and pristine water, not to mention millions of blueberry bushes!

We printed the information from the Ancient website, and headed off in our canoe with Sasha and Lily, our Golden Retrievers. We parked at the Cassels Lake landing and canoed for about 1 1/2 hours to the portage to Blueberry Lake. The portage is an easy 450 metres.

Wolf scat on the portage.

Bread Loaf Rock
This rock is located beside one of the campsites. The rock is splitting off in slices - doesn't it look like a huge loaf of bread?

Lichen patches above the high water mark. I love the patterns. This may become a stitchery some day!

We had the lake to ourselves, so we chose a campsite and settled in. Tomorrow I'll show some photos from the campsite.
