Boathouses on the shore.
The day was overcast and very warm and humid. The lake was a mirror of calm.
The trees are starting to change colour. In another week this could be quite spectacular.
There is a campground in the trees. What a peaceful spot on this late Saturday afternoon.
The train station is a National Historic Site. (photo taken May '09)
It was built in 1900-01 for the total of $30,000!
Sir William Van Horne, who built the Canadian Pacific Railway, commissioned the station.
The structure is a combination of Gothic, Baroque and Victorian style
and modelled after a Scottish castle.
I'll have another post about this beautiful building soon.
I hope you enjoyed this trip to Wauklahegan Lake.
We have had a few days of very unseasonably warm temperatures with a
feel-like temperature of 88 F. I'm loving it!
Have a great day!
