We had a wonderful long week-end away. We stopped at the General Store in Stanton to get our fix of fudge on the way up. When we arrived at our site there was a yellow-bellied sapsucker woodpecker waiting to greet us. Well, not really there to greet us but just looking for bugs I'm sure. After setting up we headed to Kettle Lake to see what we could see. There was not to much action there but the scenery was great. It was nice to take in the sites of this wonderful park again.
We drove into Midland on Saturday to get fuses for the brake buddy as it blew its fuse on the way up. On the way back to the park we stopped and had some yummy poutine in Lafontaine and picked up campfire wood. Later we hiked the beaver trail and that is where we saw the pileated woodpecker. We enjoyed a wonderful evening at the campfire and it was so warm we didn't even need jackets.
Sunday we met up with Mike and Wendy for lunch in Midland. It was nice to reconnect with them and catch up. Hopefully we will see them again soon during our summer travels through the parks. Sunday evening we enjoyed the sunset by the water even though it was a little cloudy.
Memories Of Awenda

Heart shaped log in the bush
A back lit red trillium
Yellow-bellied sapsucker welcome
The trilliums were in full bloom throughout the park

I love the colour contrast in this trillium

Reflections At Kettle Lake
There are many colours even in spring
Almost looks like a fish with the reflection
We love Awenda! Can you find the heart shape?
The lake was like glass on Sunday evening
