MarketWATCH Muskoka: 30 September 2020

Definitely early this year … fall colours are ablaze! It’s also a time when stags and bull moose are more active, not to mention tom turkeys charging cars. Be vigilant!!

Want to go for a drive to see the colours? You have to keep your eyes on the side of the road too. There could easily be a large animal deciding to dash across the roadway.

If it’s colour you’re looking for, Huckleberry rock is a good place for a walk. Get to the top and the view over Lake Muskoka is more than majestic! This week add spectacular to the descriptors. Truly a sight to behold! Of a more intimate experience, going to the cranberry bog to see the red berries is a treat. Haliburton Forest is in its glory too. No matter where you look, the world has taken on a golden hue tinged with crimson. Did I mention the smell of leaves? A trip down memory lane…

It’s definitely a time to be outside!
