For our last outing of this trip, Sue and I chose a bit of good exercise around the easy, anticlockwise, Parkway loop from P8.
It was cold and sunny. Just as we like it. The trails were quiet.
After more than two weeks, we saw our first grooming machine – of the larger variety that they use on the Parkways (perhaps there is only one of these machines, plus several smaller ones).
On Champlain Parkway we passed this huge sheet of ice.
That’s it for now. We are due at the airport shortly. No doubt the Bridgewater Canal may feature in the next posting…
For the record: P8 (Chelsea) > Gatineau Parkway > #32 > Fortune Parkway > Champlain Parkway > Gatineau Parkway > P8 = 21.9 km, 417 metres ascent, taking 2 hours 44 mins (2.42 moving time)
Au revoir from Ottawa and many many thanks to Ken and Helen for putting up with us for the last couple of weeks.
