Indian Summer comes to Parry Sound
Many overseas guests have heard about our " Indian summer" and think
it refers to a warm and sunny stretch of weather in the fall. For most of us in Canada, we think of it sunny, warm weather typically in late October or early November, after the leaves have turned following an onset of frost but before the first major snowfall.
This last week has been a wonderful example of Indian summer - warm sunshine, crunchy leaves underfoot, a much quieter pace throughout the town - and, best of all, no bugs!
Any observer can still find the beauty - whether it is the mist hovering over the water, like in the picture seen here, the bare branches of a tree silhouetted against the bright blue sky or bright sunshine reflecting off of Georgian Bay like diamonds.
For low impact, there are a number of suggested walks available throughout the town – from easy to challenging – including a Historical Walking Tour.
If you are looking for a more ambitious hike, there are two portions of the Park-to-Park Trail (which connects Killbear Provincial Park with Algonquin Provincial Park) you can explore.
If you would prefer to use the two wheels of a bicycle, most of the hiking trails are multi-use and can be used by cyclists.
