They really should call this Sunrise Country

Sunrise at Red Lake, Ontario
Jerry Purcell of Cedar Falls, Iowa, took this fabulous shot of a sunrise last summer right in the narrows where camp is located. What a stunner!

Jerry is a friend of Bob and Rosalie Moninger who have the cabin just upstream of camp.

The photo was even used on their local television station KWWL-TV.

Northwestern Ontario, from about Ignace to the Manitoba border, is in the Sunset Country travel region. Photos like this make us wonder if it should really be called Sunrise Country.

The old adage "the early bird gets the worm" comes to mind when I see photos like this.

Most people were still snug in their beds when Jerry recorded this image.

Sunrise is a great time to get out on the lake, and not just for the scenery. This is the best time of day to see moose and bear and other wild creatures. Walleye fishing is pretty darn good at this hour too. Northern pike is usually always better as the sun gets higher.
