The Shores Of Pink Lake

Today I have more views from Pink Lake in Gatineau Park during my walkabout. With the fall colours, there were a good number of people on the trail, both taking advantage of the NCC shuttles and those driving their own cars.


I came across this little rascal on the trail. He or she was kind enough to oblige me in taking some shots.


This turned out to be my final shot of the trip, as the camera battery reserve went into shut down. I turned and headed back for where I had come, pleased by how many shots I'd managed to take during the day. Tomorrow I'll have more from the Gatineau Hills; I'm adding in this link about meromictic lakes, which includes a list of them around the world.

  14. @DJan: I knew the spots I particularly wanted to get to first, so getting shots in at Pink Lake, particularly as many as I did, was a bonus.

    @Sandi: it was an ideal day to get into the Hills.

    @Italiafinlandia: they were at their peak.

  21. The scenery is breathtaking. The lake is not "pink" but is beautiful nonetheless. What a wonderful place to hike or ride bike! We have nothing that compares in this part of the country.

  23. @Bill: thanks!

    @Lowell: this is quite common up here. The Hills are essentially the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains.

    @Carol: I certainly thought so.

    @Happyone: that it is.

    @Revrunner: definitely.

  24. You had a good day for being out on a nature walk, William, and the colors were spectacular too...even if the lake wasn't actually pink :-)

  25. Beautiful shots! Nothing like the colors of fall.

  26. You introduced me to the term "meromictic" lakes but I wonder if the lake is named after someone because it certainly doesn't look pink to me.
