Summer Extension

Generally in this part of the world, the door to Summer is considered to close on Labour Day Weekend.

Occasionally Mother Nature forgets and leaves it wide open for another week or so.

When that happens, gloriously calm and luxurious afternoons occur.

The illusion that this will continue forever is strong, despite the certain knowledge that it can’t come true.

Lake Nipissing shows itself at its best during these special times.

Westward Ho!

The mouth of the Lavase River at Lake Nipissing.

From this point the Voyageurs of the early Canada fur trade crossed Lake Nipissing and began the trip down the French River to Lake Huron.

The eventual destination was Western Canada where the goods they were carrying were exchanged for furs.

Early Winter

Winter is just getting started on Lake Nipissing.

The ice is deemed safe enough for the winter fishing to begin.

Snow machine tracks signal activity as do the footprints.

The fishing hut population will increase.

Another Winter Season begins.

Lake Nipissing Afternoon

Lake Nipissing has many moods.

Late in November come days when the wind is calm, the sky is tranquil and the light is wonderful.

This is the “waiting” time of year.

Quiet anticipation of events to come is in the air.

In Summer, the kids swim off this rock at Sunset Point on Lake Nipissing.

These days, not so much action.

The ice will be here soon.
