October is, without a doubt, our most spectacularly beautiful month in the Kawarthas.
Many of our readers are fans of fall, but even if you are not, how can you resist the breathtaking vista of a multicoloured forest lit up by the sun? And even when the temperatures dip, the misty mornings on our local lakes are beautiful and serene too. The wildlife also tends to become more visible at this time of year as they emerge when the cottage country traffic becomes lighter.
We have all of these Kawarthas things in our top photos this month and I hope you will enjoy them all!
