Algonquin Park – Fall 2022…Huntsville !

The photo above is a bronze statue downtown Huntsville and it’s a depiction of Tom Thompson, one of the Group of Seven Painters. Tom Thompson died prior to the Group of Seven formation but he was a significant part of the Group nonetheless.

I love Huntsville, it’s about 45-50 minute drive from the Park. Lots to do in this area plus another Ontario Provincial Park, Arrowhead Provincial Park. We like to walk around downtown stopping in different stores and of course the Beaver Tails restaurant. If you haven’t had a Beaver Tail, well then you must not be Canadian! It’s not a real beaver tail (obviously lol) but a pastry, deep fried in the shape of a beaver tail and then decorated however you like. Clint and I stick to the original which is just cinnamon and sugar but you can get Nutella, bananas, and a multitude of other items on your tail.

I should take some photos of downtown Huntsville next time, I always forget. It’s a pretty cute downtown and they actually have used the downtown to film at least one Hallmark movie. Pretty cool!

I had read about a trail in Huntsville that I had not heard of before so we decided to check it out. It’s funny how you can go to a town or city over and over and still find new things to do and see. The Hunter Bay trail is quite unique, it’s about 7 kms long and two parts of it are a floating boardwalk.

On the way home we stopped in Dwight at the Boiler Room Tap and Grill for a bite to eat. We have been here before and it’s a pretty nice spot.

Below is a pic I took on a side road on the way home.

If you haven’t heard of the Muskokas, it’s a beautiful area. A real “cottage” area with tons of outdoor activities and beautiful scenery. If you are in Ontario, this is a great area to visit.

See you soon!

  1. Public art adds so much to any downtown area. Very nice! If downtown Huntsville is as picturesque as the surrounding area, it is easy to see why a Hallmark movie was filmed there. Thank you for sharing more beauty. šŸ„° Merry Christmas!

    1. Merry Christmas to you too ! We are under seige from a severe storm since Friday morning. All roads are closed, including our major highways, stores closed etc! It’s quite something up here, thankfully we celebrated Christmas with our son and daughter-in-law earlier this week (in Toronto) as we would not be going anywhere this weekend!

  2. Beautiful Fall colors here in that last picture. I am Canadian and never had a beaver tail. I feel deprived, but no one I can complain to at any rate. I think that skinny bear needs a few desserts to fatten it up. That is a great boardwalk over the water and it appears to be very long. I would like to walk that. I wish I remembered more about Huntsville and visiting there as a child but I was too young.

    1. haha yes the bear is cute but way too skinny! Yes the boardwalk was fun to walk, I should look up when they put it there. I don’t think it’s been there very long, we go to Huntsville all the time and that’s the first time we have walked it.
