An Early Spring Drive into Lake Travers in Algonquin Park

2018 March 26

On Monday March 26, Bob and Diana drove into Lake Travers in Algonquin Park. It was a beautiful day and we had the park to ourselves; we didn't see a soul from when we left Hwy. 17 until well after we had left the park on the way home. Everything is still pretty much frozen but with a little bare ground in sunny spots. The road was in remarkably good condition, but it's still largely frozen. When we left home we didn't really have an agenda because we didn't know the condition of the road. But the driving was good and we went all the way to Lake Travers. None of the public side roads -- into McManus Lake or into Achray -- were drivable.
