Home from Lake Superior…lots of catching up to do

Lake Superior Sunset with Linda

Linda on our last evening in September on the beach at Lake Superior Provincial Park…the snow and ice are now here at Carleton Place and I thought catching up would be a good thing…this post will take us to September 22nd and in the next few days I’ll post more to hopefully get this blog current.

Chutes part two

We stopped at Chutes Provincial Park on the return trip as well. It’s just a lovely park and conveniently located on our return home.

We tried to find somewhere new to camp on the way home..Arrowhead Provincial Park was on the way.

Arrowhead - calm lake

Once again a beautiful day to be out. The lake was calm and we were able to take the bicycles out for a ride as we arrived early enough.

Arrowhead Provincial Park Camp with Puck and Linda

It had rained and the park was a little damp. We managed to find a campsite that was not too full of mosquitoes and Linda was trying to get a nice photo of Puck who is exploring the new camp.

Arrowhead bridge and rapids

Of course we had to have a little hike after the bike ride and found this bridge to cross.

Arrowhead Provincial Park Wave

The Ontario version of The Wave…we found in Arrowhead Provincial park.

Arrowhead bridge and rapids to waterfall

It was a pretty creek and Stubb’s Falls leading to the Big East River, I think.

Killaloe - Original Bevertails

We also decided to take a different way home and found a town called Killaloe, Ontario…this is where the famous Beavertail started. It was a great treat.

Carelton Place sunset Panorama

Arriving back at Carleton Place we were treated to some beautiful sky.

Carleton Place - Linda on bicycle on Almont trail

As the weather stayed good, we explored the new bicycle trail to the town of Almonte…you can see the fresh grading and we were glad that we had wider tires.

Carlton Place - Snake on a path

Linda seems to find these cool little snakes…we almost ran over it with the bicycles but stopped to take a photo.

Learning about a new area often requires a motorcycle trip!

Portage-du-Fort - Ottawa River

Linda didn’t join me on this one, but was a very nice day to ride and check out one of the dams nearby.

Ottawa - Army Run on the bridge

A view of Ottawa…
