Overhead diagram signage in advance of the 1000 Islands Parkway interchange.  The Thousand Islands Parkway is a two-lane scenic alternate to Highway 401.  It is a beautiful road, and well worth the few extra minutes that it takes to traverse.  A drive during the fall is the ideal time to drive the parkway.

Highway 401 looking west from the Highway 2 overpass located just east of Gananoque (exit #648).  The interchange and structure located in the background of this photo, is that of the 401 and the Thousand Islands Parkway.  Highway 401 followed the Thousand Islands Parkway until public pressure forced the province to build the present alignment.  The present alignment was completed in 1968.
