The Ottawa River on Christmas Day

To give ourselves an appetite for Christmas Dinner we went for a walk beforehand. Here are two views across the Ottawa River towards the Gatineau Hills in Quebec, from just above the Rideau Falls, mid afternoon.  The whiteness of the hills is an indication of the snow that remains stuck to the branches of every tree up there after last week's storm.

The air temperature was -9º (-15º taking the wind chill into account); we spotted a man skiing across the frozen surface of the river on the far side.
