Every year, Karen and I, along with our friends, Bev Woodroffe and Henk Tiesma, visit Bob and Carol Barkwell, usually in the Spring, at their home in Lindsay, Ontario. Karen, Bev and Carol began their teaching careers together forty years ago.
This year, we went to Bob and Carol's cottage on Twelve Mile Lake in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario. This time we went in the Fall. The main focus of the weekend was the Haliburton County Studio Tour, which includes twenty-one artisans. We visited several studios, and also took in the town of Haliburton. The trip was extra special this year, since the Fall colours are breathtaking
The Twelve Mile Lake Church was established in 1890, and was originally Presbyterian. In 1925, it joined the United Church of Canada. it can hold about 30-40 people. The nearby cemetery holds 566 burials.
A canopy of scarlet and gold spreads out before you as far as the eye can see. From the Dorset lookout tower to Green's Mountain, Minden Wildwater Reserve to the southern Gateway to Algonquin, Haliburton County is ablaze with color.
Take a walk in the clouds, a romantic canoe ride on a lake, or ATV the miles of trails...a new, breathtaking vista awaits you around every corner.
The Haliburton Studio Tour in October offers the ideal opportunity to drive the county roads, discover the hamlets and villages of the Haliburton Highlands, while exploring many of the art studios and galleries of the county.

The Haliburton Highlands region of Ontario offers 4 seasons of outdoor splendor.

Because of the natural beauty of this area, and abundance of lakes and rivers, there is a long history of summer cottagers and visitors. With the surge of interest in winter outdoor recreation and popularity of the magnificent Fall Colours the Haliburton Highlands has become a 4 season destination.
