The Reflecting Pool

This gorgeous reflecting pool can be spotted on the Rosseau River just outside of Bala, Ontario. There were just so many vistas painted with the changing Autumn colors that it made for some pretty crazy driving (stop, go, u-turn etc). All of this series is from the Muskoka region.

The District Municipality of Muskoka, more generally referred to as the District of Muskoka, or simply Muskoka, is a located in Central Ontario, Canada. Muskoka extends from Georgian Bay in the west, to the northern tip of Lake Couchiching in the south, to the western border of Algonquin Park in the east. The name of the municipality derives from a First Nations chief of the 1850s. Lake Muskoka was then the hunting grounds of a band led by Chief Yellowhead or Mesqua Ukie. He was revered by the government, who built a home for him in Orillia where he lived until his death at the age of 95.

The soap opera Paradise Falls, about a fictitious cottage community, was shot partly on location here, to take advantage of the scenic background. The Teletoon animated reality show Total Drama Island takes place in fictitious Camp Wawanakwa, an island summer camp located “somewhere” in Muskoka.
