When we drive to or from the cottage, we usually take the rural, back route at least one way although not so much in winter. Almost all of this country is Canadian (Precambrian) Shield, which means that there are lots of lakes and trees and not very much agriculture. This particular spur or extension of the Canadian Shield is known as the Frontenac Axis, and it dips down into New York State, popping up here and there in the St Lawrence River to form the Thousand Islands and, later, the Adirondack Mountains. The following map of part of the route shows what I mean. There aren’t very many settlements and those that exist are tiny.
So, when we came across this interesting barn around the middle of the above map (about where it says Donaldson), I stopped for a brief photo shoot. Nary a vehicle passed by as I engaged the barn with my Canon. I understood the name of the road we were on to be Snow Plow Road, but I only see it as Snow Road on the map, so I may be mistaken.
The next photo zooms in somewhat, but the second one is a very close shot which reveals some interesting doors and stone work.
To reinforce the kind of country that we were in, I am including a picture of two deer. We noticed them in a laneway as we drove by, so we stopped to look at them and they to look at us although they were beginning to move on at this point.
What with nice weather, foliage, barn and fauna, we enjoyed a very pleasant trip that autumn day.
