Visit To An Old Friend

Duchesnay Creek drops over the escarpment north of our town on its way to Lake Nipissing.

Over many years and many visits, it has provided multiple opportunities to preserve in photographs and memory the uniqueness that is our part of the world.

No two encounters are ever the same.

A little creek runs beside Smith Road up near the Airport. It’s easy to miss but there are some interesting spots on it.

Spring on The Chippewa

A pleasant walk yesterday morning down the valley of Chippewa Creek.  Unseasonal summer weather has made the leaves burst forth in their delicate spring greens.

Meanders

Spring poked its head out earlier last week and then retreated.
