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.
There is a place near North Bay where Duchesnay Creek finds its way down the escarpment in a series of jumps.
This is one drop and landing for the water.
Near my town is the place that Duchesnay Creek chooses to descend the escarpment, tumbling down ledges and through cracks and crevasses in the rock of the Pre-Cambrian Shield.
When the melt comes, there is ample water flowing.
Duchesnay Creek runs high in the spring as the snow is melting upstream.
The Falls are powerful at this time of year.
Another popular waterfall in the area is Duchesnay Falls, photographed probably at least a million times.
This seems to turning into Waterfall Week!
The early run-off was slowed a day ago by more “normal” temperatures for this time of year. The water flow is a bit less frantic.
Now it feels more like spring than the summer of last week.
