    by

    July 30, 2021. It was back home from Tremblant today. This is the view from the Casse-Croute du Lac Remi (ie., a chip wagon). I have a lot of photos to look through, a Blue Jays home opener to watch, and planning to do for my next adventure. https://flic.kr/p/2medyoZ

    Rain Day

    by

    July 29, 2021. It was a cool and rainy day at Tremblant but that didn’t slow us down as we walked the 360 trail at the summit; this is a view from that walk. We also went to the bike shop in town and some shops near the hotel. https://flic.kr/p/2meaq1W

    Lac Nominingue

    by

    July 27, 2021. Today was a 122 km ride from Mont Tremblant to Lac Nominingue and back. Cool and cloudy for the most part; I cycled pretty fast (for me) at 19.9 kph or the distance, leaving me pretty tired at the end. But rightly so; it’s the second-longest ride…

    Mont Tremblant

    by

    July 2, 2021. We spent the day packing and driving up to Mont Tremblant today to enjoy a few days of well-earned vacation in the Laurentian Mountains. This is a detail from the splash pad near our room. We’re in a different building today, Sommit de Neiges, and the room…

    Marlborough Forest

    by

    July 25, 2021. We went hiking in the Marlborough Forest today, which is at the very south-west corner of Ottawa city limits. Much fewer people than elsewhere, beautiful cedar and scrub forest, the walking trails rougher but still very walkable. The weather was warm and nearly perfect. https://flic.kr/p/2mdpF3T

    Nation Rise

    by

    July 23, 2021. On the way back from Chesterville I took what turned out to be a dead-end road and found myself pushing my bicycle beside a bean field alongside the Nation River, which is where I took this photo. It’s called ‘Nation Rise’ because that’s the name of the…

    A Forest of Goldenrod

    by

    July 22, 2021. This is what it looks like alongside the driveway in the front yard: a sea of flowering goldenrod. Yes, this is another plant considered a weed by many, but I would much rather have this splash of colour in my front yard than plain grass. Today was…
