LIMBERLOST LODGE is located in a very scenic area. Geologically, we are located in the Penokean Hills. The Mississagi River flows in a crack in this ancient landscape that once had mountains higher than the Rockies. Several Ice Ages (the last one retreated only 10,000 years ago) scoured the landscape and today we have a very rocky, rugged landscape. We are in a Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Forest and Boreal Forest Transition Area and this provides us with a mixed forest of deciduous and coniferous trees. In autumn, the forests are spectacular as the hardwoods lose their green and are ablaze in their brilliant colours. But what makes them unique is the mix. A tall white pine surrounded by orange, yellow and red maples is a beautiful sight.
