The Madawaska River

The Madawaska River has its headwaters here in Algonquin Park, descending towards the Ottawa River at Arnprior. It flows here along a trail near the Lake Of Two Rivers and Mew Lake campgrounds. 


Along this stretch of the river, it's peaceful.

  6. I like those Indian names you have there for rivers and places. When we drove around in Canada a few years ago we always pronounced the names a few times to each other because they sound so exotic to us.

  7. It seems that the river is not going anywhere or in a hurry to go.

    @VP: the names appeal to me.

    @Whisk: I thought so myself.

    @Karl: it is.

    @Bill: I have to remember when I sent a link along...

    @Jen: thanks!

    @Marianne: once you get used to them, they're easy to pronounce.

    @Tomas: not here, no, it's tended to be quiet every time I've seen this stretch of the river.

    @Hilary: that's the idea!

    @Beth: Alberta and BC are beautiful provinces.

    @Revrunner: many people do!

    @Halcyon: definitely!

  14. The river looks lovely glimpsed through those magnificent trees William.

  15. I like the way the water just seems to cut a swath right through that field.

  16. Lovely shots, William. I'm anxious to travel north to the park soon.

  18. @Tex: no shortage of pines!

    @Norma: they have a good ring to the sounds of the names.

    @Jan: it certainly would be!

    @Luis: thanks!

    @Grace: a day spent out on one of these trails passing along a river is one well spent.

    @Sharon: it definitely stands out like that.

    @EG: I need to go up too sometime soon.

    @Judy: it really does.

    @Cheryl: it certainly is.

    @Linda: thanks!

  19. My actor-son taught white water kayaking in this river, back before he graduated! I didn't know until he was nearly done, thankfully!

  20. Peaceful indeed! What a beautiful place to walk and camp!

  21. It is a lovely area William! We have quite a few places and bodies of water with Native American names here in Florida too and some of them are quite hard to pronounce if you are not used to hearing them.

    @Jose: thanks!

    @Denise: it is.

    @Tanya: thanks!

    @Kay: it's a popular area for camping.

    @Lois: I guess it depends on the tribe.
