Algonquin Provincial Park: Bat Lake

A view from the Bat Lake hiking trail
25 June, 2006

I took my son back to Algonquin for his second summer working as a Park Naturalist. After I dropped him off I hiked the 5.6 km Bat Lake trail. It was overcast most of the time so not the best for odes. I photographed a few interesting mushrooms and some insects. Because the brush was so dense most of the time there was little to see. I understand Bat Lake is a good spot for odeing because there are no fish in the Lake. I did see a few different species: the ubiquitous Chalk-fronted Corporal, a couple of Widow Skimmers, and many White-face.
