The Story Behind the Photo

My two girls and I decided to hike one of our favourite trails in Algonquin Park: the Centennial Ridges Trail. It’s a fairly long and challenging hike (approximately 10K) which reaches a beautiful lookout over Whitefish Lake. Along one point of the trail, there is a beaver pond, with a pile of gorgeous flowery bushes strewn about the shore. These flowers attract a number of butterflies, and this was one of them.
