|The top of Blakeney Rapids in Winter|
The Blakeney Rapids are well hidden on the Mississippi River outside of Ottawa (Canada -- not the US). You can't see them from the highway, or from the local regional roads. However, if you drive between Pakenham and Arnprior, and turn onto Blakeney Road, you will find a small parking lot where the road crosses the Mississippi River. Walk down the path a bit, and you will find the rapids.

It's a spectacular place in summer, and just as great in winter. The path can be quite slippery, and the rocks at the edge can be get covered with ice, so great care is needed.
