Changing seasons, changing river, The Ottawa...

So as summer rolls into autumn and the days start getting shorter and cooler here on the banks of the Ottawa river the water levels in the northern drainage begin to rise dramatically. This forces the Hydro dams up and downstream to start managing the water differently in preparation for winter. The river levels have been rising since September first and that is good news for the kayakers who are still here. It means big volume fun all day long, or more usually all afternoon long as there is still little bits of work to do in the daytime at Wilderness Tours. I only have another week or so left of this season and I am hoping to see some mini-bus action before I leave but who knows if the levels will rise enough or not. Stay tuned I guess, but for now check out some photos form the last couple weeks.

See you on the river
