hiking around pink lake

pink lake - gatineau park

We went for a beautiful hike around Pink Lake (@ Gatineau Park) today.

It's only 2kms long, but it's got steps galore and the path is very rough. Lilah walked the whole thing by herself, not that I'm sure we could even carry her anymore! Is it any wonder she was begging to go to bed early and fell asleep at 6:30 tonight?!

The Fall colours are absolutely phenomenol at the moment, they really take my breath away. And the incredible weather we are getting right now is so so perfect, 24°C today and tomorrow is to be 27°C, not at all bad for October!

  1. So very exquisite!

    I, too, live in Ottawa and can verify the temperatures are positively unexpected for this time of year.

    We actually contemplated camping at Sandbanks, this long week-end, as the over-night temps are unusually warm.

  2. Grammy Carol,

    I LOVE sandbanks too! :) And I agree, we are more likely to see snow this time of year than these warm temperatures!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. the colours at this time of year are spectacular. A walk sound like the perfect thing to do.

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.


  4. Just the name pink lake, makes me want to go there. It looks beautiful especially this time of year...

  5. Georgeous shots. I love that she even hikes in style. We're starting to seen some beautiful colors here, too.

  6. What beautiful fall colors! However, I don't think the lake looks very pinkish... ;)
