Algonquin Park – Spring Trip – More Moose…. and Friends….

You can barely see the two cows in the back of the marsh

To continue on with some photos from our trip to Algonquin Park in May of this year. We had a great time and saw lots of moose. Not so much of other wildlife but that’s okay, moose are my favourite. Sadly the 11-12 days we were there, 4 moose were hit and killed by vehicles. But not the two below, they were 2 young cows and they were having a great time in a marsh area.

We also did some trails which were quite nice. We did more than I am showing below but it’s just a few to show the landscape.

Until next time……..stay safe.

      1. That was my forst thought, Trum, they must survive! But, is there a solid solution other than drivers slowing way the heck down? That’s hard to enforce.

    1. It’s really hard to enforce and it’s not a parks highway, it’s a Provincial highway and that’s the only route and that’s why the speed limit is so high. People have been asking for them to lower the speed limit but nothing done yet.

    1. Oh that’s awful! Poor cat. the problem is that it’s a provincial highway, 80 kmph so you know a lot of people are doing 90-100 or more. Unfortunately people drive that hwy to get to and from work as its the only road to take. And the moose don’t know that. 😦


    1. Thanks Michele! It is a beautiful colour and there are 5 different native Trilliums: White Trillium, Red Trillium, Painted Trillium, Drooping Trillium, and Nodding Trilliu. The Red are my favourite. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

  1. That sure is a gnarly trail – you have to literally pick your way along from all the tree roots. Timing is everything for that moose shot! I looked at it and saw extra legs before seeing the extra head. 🙂 Sorry to hear about all the moose that were killed during your stay. If only people would respect our wildlife better and slow down and look for them – they are certainly big enough!

    1. Yes some of the trails are gnarly for sure! I always take my time haha. I don’t want to break anything lol. I get a kick out that moose shot I took, the famous 2 headed Canadian moose lol. Yes people need to slow down but everyone is always in such a hurry all the time.

      1. At Lake Erie Metropark they have a group called “Coffee Club” – these group members meet for coffee and donuts at this park once a month at 7:00 a.m., then set off on an interpretive walk at 7:30 a.m.. Some have been meeting for over 20 years. I decided to go one time – they were all nice and welcomed me to the group. I was chattin’ it up on the trail with someone and a woman fell on one of those gnarly roots and went face down and had to be carried by Park rangers off the path to her car. A little scary – I want to see everything, but don’t want to “face plant” either. I know – people driving recklessly makes me angry. We see a lot of that here.

      2. Same here Susan. Extra park employees were asked to come help, then they took her away and helped put her in the car. She was not driving – her husband was. We stayed on our tour – I always wondered though – a nasty fall. They were a nice group, but I went around Labor Day and they meet the first Saturday of each month. The next time would be dark – it’s about 16 miles away, so I’d be leaving when dark – too much crime around here anymore unfortunately.
