I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.
Craig Lake north of Plevna, one of the highest lakes in Ontario. There is no easy way to get here, but it is worth the effort.
Snow Road Presbyterian Church, established 1885. Snow Road was named after a Mr. Snow who was a road surverer. Snow Road was once the largest shipping location for maple syrup in the Dominion of Canada. The Kingston and Pembrooke Railway had a station a few hundred meters south of here after 1883. Squared pine logs was the greatest volume item exported from here.
Boat launching ramp on Schooner Lake. This is accessed by a toll road. Permits may be purchased in Plevna.
This concrete weir can be used to set the minimum level of Schooner Lake, and be used to calculate the rate of flow by using the depth of water over the top, the width and a formula.
Looking north east along Big Island.
A drunken forest, soft bog material lets trees fall over.
Craig Lake requires a long hike through unmarked woods.
Old highway 509 bridge?
Looking down the creek that drains Round Schooner Lake.
The camp is Salmond's Hunt Camp and it predates both the bridge and the lake. It has occupied this location in one form or another since the 1950s.
Looking west along Big Island on Centenial Lake.
View looking south of Long and Round Schooner lakes.
Looking north east. There are two canoes in this picture.
There are many glacial erratic rocks in this area.
Granite hard head rock fence, made by hand clearing the land. 0.4 km long.
This little beaver dam raised Schooner Lake a bit and made paddling the creek easier.
How did this car get here? The car was used to power a logging drag line and not a saw mill. It was part of a logging operation removing timber from the area to be flooded by the creation of Centenial Lake in 1967. The loggers just left it behind and it has been known as the Blue Car ever since.
The soft soils of this bog let many trees fall over.
Glacial erratic granite boulder at the top of a cliff.
There are hundreds of massive granite glacial erratic boulders on this hill top and all over the lake bottom.
