Where the Muskoka River falls into Go Home Lake, there is a spot just above the
falls called The Slide. This is where the water rushes over the smooth
rock, encountering few obstructions, and creating amazing reflections and patterns
in the water.
In spring runoff, the smaller obstructions are covered with
foam, while the smoother rocks cause the water to flow in sculpted shapes, mounds,
stripes and crystal-clear patches which reflect the sky, the clouds and the opposite
bank. The granite beneath the water is patched with different colours,
and in places, it looks like a map of the Earth's surface.
