Fields of Trout Lily
One of the many delights of spring is the abundance of trout lily which cover the forest floor in May.The light green in the above picture is all trout lily. The Trout Lily is a great addition to spring salads...The leaves are delicious as are the flowers and small onion looking roots. Also out at this time of year are Red Trillium.

Surprise Lake Creek and spring creek runs
The sound of rushing water can be heard from the Log Cabin dock at this time of year. The creeks are swollen which presents a great opportunity to bring out the playboat and have some fun in the moving water. There are several creeks/ small rivers around both the Algonquin Log Cabin and Algonquin Cottage Outpost with good access. For those of you white water fans, call our office for how we can shape a great late April/ early May weeknd for you!
