Oxtongue Lake - Ragged Falls - Long Lake
|Oxtongue Lake - Pen and Ink Sketch 2011|
Over the years we’ve come to know Oxtongue Lake well. Sandy and I have paddled its length, from the rapids at the base of Ragged Falls, to the beaver damn at the inlet at the far south end. For many years we've vacationed at a resort called the Blue Spruce located on the shore of the lake and on occasion we've stayed in a cabin called “A.J.’s”, named after the famed member of Canada's Group of Seven Painters, A.J. Casson. A. J. Casson was friends with the owners of the Blue Spruce Resort, and frequented the resort making many paintings of Oxtongue Lake, as well as Algonquin Provincial Park.
