Spring walk by the Ottawa

We had a pleasant stroll this afternoon down the hill from the Rockcliffe Flying Club to the Ottawa River and then on the cycle path (also good for walkers) along its south bank. This land all used to belong to the Rockcliffe Air Base; the National Capital Commission now owns it for the purpose of public recreation.

Shortcut to the river trail from the RFC...
... through the sumac bushes
Evidence of woodpeckers!

Puddle on the trail. Some cyclists rode straight through it.

The trail near the RCMP stables (up the hill to the right)

Poplars with catkins
