These canoes sit along the shores of the Oxtongue River in Oxtongue River Ragged Falls Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada as it seemed like the ideal spot to stop for a snack. Canoeing the Oxtongue River is a fantastic adventure especially during the Fall when the trees are turning into an array of spectacular colors. Canoeing into this area requires a bit of skill as the rocks along the Oxtongue River can appear from anywhere. As the river is shallower along the banks, one must be aware of each paddle and maneuver that is made.
While exploring the wilderness along the banks of the Oxtongue River, one must be careful as the rocks can be very slippery and one wrong move could send you into the icy cold water.
