The Trails Behind My House

The area behind my house is mostly rock and undeveloped bush. At a time long in the past we would have been situated on an island, but when the glaciers melted and the lake drained, the island ended up connected with the mainland by a low-lying piece of land. A twenty foot rise in water level would put us back on an island again.

In “recent” years, recreational walking trails have developed and lately a map and signs have appeared. Winter, and the advent of “snowshoeing” as a recreational activity have made walking these trails a fun thing to do. They become packed hard enough that snowshoes are not required much of the time. If one wishes to set off through the bush off the trail, then snowshoes are a necessity but a pleasant trek through the bush can be had without them. The absence of leaves makes it possible to see some of the features of the area.

Opportunities for photographs are numerous.

Sharing the experience of the trails is particularly special.

Temiscaming Pipeline Park

The Kipawa Power Station on the East bank of the Ottawa River in Temiscaming was supplied by a pipe of the diameter you see in the photograph. The pipe collected water at the Lumsden Dam on Gordon Creek above the town, ran through the centre of town and delivered the water to the turbines in the power house. The electricity was used to power the pulp mill and light the town.

The town has created a linear Park with historical information stops to tell the story of the development of Temiscaming.

Temporary Trail

The wake of the ferry marks our passage across the Saint Lawrence River.

It will fade shortly, leaving no trace of our existence.

Autumn Trail

This trail is part of the snow machine network in winter. These days the occasional renegade four wheeler will chance a run.

It’s pretty quiet right now.
