October is the month, as we all know, that Mother Nature pulls out her full palette to show the Kawarthas in all its natural glory. This year, she did not disappoint.
The fall colours were a bit delayed this year, but once they arrived they were magnificent and long lasting. One of the things I like best about this month’s top photos is the representation across our full region — from the shield in the north to the City of Kawartha Lakes to the hills of Millbrook and even downtown Peterborough.
I hope you enjoy this virtual tour!
