Fall in Ontario is simply beautiful. These photos reinforce just how lucky we are to live in or to be able to visit Sunset Country.

We've had exceptionally nice weather this autumn in Northwest Ontario. Plenty of sunshine, above average temperatures, incredible fishing, beautiful fall colours and fantastic sunsets!

Here's just a taste of what we experienced this fall:

It was a beautiful weekend to close up Wenasaga's outpost on Slate Lake which is located 37 miles northeast of Ear Falls in Ontario, Canada.

Beautiful northern lights!

September northern lights were fantastic and they seem to be continuing into October. Chris Marchand of the Dryden Observer captured this photo just before the clouds covered the show near Dryden.

Sunsets are earlier in October, but just as beautiful!

This glorious sunset was taken at the docks of Nestor Falls Fly-in Outposts. As the season winds down, all the float planes will soon be put away.

Houseboating on Lac Seul in the fall

There's something to be said about getting out on the lake in autumn. As you cruise around, the yellow, orange and red leaves really stand out against the evergreens dotting the shoreline. Here some fall hunters are aboard a houseboat from Lac Seul Floating Lodges.

As I reflect on what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving, I can't help but to feel very blessed to live in a place where all this beauty is commonplace.  If you've never been to Ontario's Sunset Country, you certainly should consider a visit, it's truly a remarkable area.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
