20171007 McDougall Township loop showing autumn colours

We left Bowes St, Parry Sound, went east along McDougall Road, then North through Hurdville, to Waubamik, up The Bunny Trail to Boundary Lake and back along Hwy 124 to return along Hwy 69 with a stop at Site Nine.

McDougall Township was named after William McDougall, one of the “Fathers of Confederation” and is one of the three (Seguin, McDougall, Carling) large rural townships bordering on Parry Sound.

Here are some of the fall scenes visible from the car:

Looking northerly from the Site Nine Road off of Hwy 69…

The intermittent showers gave us some damp leaves, making them a bit more “showy” than dry leaves.

Good information on colour formation in leaves.
