Part 2 Point Pelee National Park (Read Part 1) by Dave Cooper
From the tower near the marsh walk you can see the many Weeping Willow trees that grow thick on the eastern side of the point right next to the cattails that cover the swampy areas.
The Beach Walk along the west side of the point is 2.5 kilometers long and a suggested 30 minute walk, but for a photographer like me, who is always looking for that next photo opportunity, it usually takes four times as long. I found a nice Cactus patch growing along the beach. Below is a photo of one of the many healthy specimens.
I almost stepped on this little guy on my walk back to the parking lot at the visitors centre. I don’t think I have ever seen a two toned frog before. He blended in very well with the grass along the path. After a search on the website “naturewatch.ca” I find this type to be known as “Green Frogs” and he will find a shallow pond and hibernate until spring.
