Painting Canada - Thomson and the Group of Seven, in Algoma



I thought with the opening of the Painting Canada - Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven you might enjoy of seeing how some of the locations they painted in look today, at least in the Agawa Canyon of the Algoma region.

Below are some links to trip reports, both fall and winter and images where they painted.

The Image above is of a an area where A.Y. Jackson painted.
It is a fantastic area that the Group visited on their box car trips, and still accessible by the same way they did almost 100 years ago.....
via the ACR (Algoma Central Railway)
I hope you enjoy the stories,
and then visit the Show at the McMichael collection.
