April Fools in the Villages of Almaguin

Throughout the Almaguin Highlands the snow was dissipating, half loads for roads are imposed, and the spring celebrations are being held in most communities.  Still large snowbanks are present on north facing slopes and at the end of seasonal roads so no access for vehicles yet for cottages accessed by these roads.  Lovely to drive country roads and watch the change of the countryside as it soon comes alive….. Be slow and diligent  (to take in the beauty) because the frost heaves are everywhere and change locations daily so they may not have caution signs put up by the municipality.

Temperatures have not been great for the production of Maple Syrup because of the sap buckets ex edgecolder days throughout March but last week the temperatures rose above freezing for the day time making the sap flow well.  Be sure to explore some of these operations open to the public throughout the area.  Maple Syrup Festivities


Well a week into April and Burk’s Falls has been hit with 2 severe winter storms so we are back to snow everywhere much to the delight of snowmobilers.  Riding a sled please be careful as the ditches are full of water and there is no ice that is safe.  For those of you that have been wondering if the snow has dissipated to view vacant land this week end in our area….bring your snowshoes!  The photos below were taken this morning April 7th.

I guess bringing out the lawn furniture was a little premature!  Hopefully the next blog in 2 weeks I can show some budding trees.  Visit my website most of the photos of listings are nice summer ones.

Puppy update:  She is getting big but at six months old Lambig (pronounced lambeeg) still needs the security of lying close or on her big sister  Corona at nap time 🙂

About Louisa Moffit

I have been a REALTOR® for the past 21 years and love the area and communities I work in. When showing property or taking listings I always travel with my four legged companions. My clients and I enjoy their company when walking through the forest viewing pristine vacant property which they are interested in purchasing. My dog’s antics through the snow is also a source of amusement to everyone. Getting serious however… viewing properties throughout the area can be a daunting task without the expertise of a real estate agent who knows the area well. That is why I am your “Go To” REALTOR® for Undiscovered Cottage Country – The Almaguin Highlands
