The Picturesque Beauty of The Narrows: Day to Night – Bon Echo Provincial Park

Watch a natural wonder unfold before you as the granite glows golden under the setting sun. The rock goes dark, then bursts into a fiery red before fading into complete darkness.

Sunset on Mazinaw Rock

Watch a natural wonder unfold before you as the granite’s hues are warmed by the sun.

The colour saturation increases until the rock is glowing golden before it fades into darkness.

At this point, many campers and hikers might turn back for the walk back to cars and campsites, but you should stick around even after the sun dips below the horizon.

Soak in the beauty as the dying light sends streaking colours across the sky, casting beautiful reflections across the waters and wait. You’ll be rewarded by the incredible sight of Mazinaw Rock lighting up with a last crimson glow.

The fiery display lasts but a few minutes, but you’ll remember it forever.
