I went for an afternoon paddle in Rapid lake, Whitney, after a great bike ride in the morning and wonderful hikes the day before. I was able to spend two full days exploring Algonquin Park near Hwy 60 - wonderful area! Lovely fall colours and no crowds! I think many of the birds have flown south, but I did see a great blue heron and a couple of common mergansers. I stopped for a rest on a gneiss rock in the sunshine!
