Johnston Creek in Banff National Park.

Johnson Canyon

The Johnston Canyon trail follows the creek up to a waterfall. Easy walking and quite busy.

Memory

I made this shot last week.  This past weekend turned warm and it is raining this morning.  The snow is gone.

Wassi First Snow 2

Now, only this memory exists.

But then thats what photographs are, aren’t they?

Blue Heron

I visited Eau Claire Gorge yesterday and paused on the bridge which crosses the Amable du Fond River.

The heron was not disturbed by my presence or by the occasional car crossing.

It was just enjoying the fall colours, I guess.

Duchesnay Creek

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.

Nostalgia

The Grand River in Galt from the Concession Street Bridge.

The Scottish heritage of Galt is marked by the steeples of two Presbyterian churches, Knox on the left and Central on the right.  The buildings are kitty corner from each other across a small park.

Fall on the Wasi River

The leaves are almost gone from the trees beside the Wasi River.

The scene was different one month ago.

Go West

This is the mouth of the Lavase River, where it enters Lake Nipissing.  For 150 years The Voyageurs paddled through this channel in the spring, on their way west to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior.  The return voyage passed this point and ended up in Montreal in the Autumn.  Lake Nipissing is controlled by dams on the French River these days, and there are navigation markers in place.  However the place is pretty much the same as it would have been 150 years ago.

In the spring the water would be much higher than it is in this photograph, but by fall it would probably have been as you see it here.

Wasi River

The river meanders beside Lake Nosbonsing Road for a short distance, giving glimpses of itself in and out of the trees.  A quiet grey morning in late August provided a tranquil scene.

A short distance downstream it tumbles through a series of rapids into Callandar Bay.
