For Carmichael, the spectacular physiography of Ontario’s La Cloche Mountains was to become an integral part of his personal life and his artistic career. In 1935 Carmichael completed the construction of a log cabin on Cranberry Lake. Nearly every autumn a small group of Carmichael’s artist friends used the cottage as their sketching headquarters.
