Recent Work: Lac Bourgeois

Lac Bourgeois, Gatineau Park, Quebec

One of the nice things about spring is that the shoreline of lakes is not yet overgrown, so if you are willing (and able) to walk to the edge, some views are available that are hard to get at other times of the year. Sometimes it involves wading through mud and muck, but a good pair of waterproof hiking boots can get you through!

Suburban Henge

Strange obelisks at Green's Creek

Recently while walking along a nature trail in the east end of Ottawa, I encountered a series of strange concrete obelisks, obviously decaying with age, complete with spray-painted art and tags.

Today's version of stonehenge? I can only guess at the modern "rituals" that gave rise to these pillars.
