In late October I came up to Nepean Point, the promontory overlooking Ottawa, Gatineau, and the Ottawa River. The statue of Champlain is here, and splendid views can be found in each direction.
The National Gallery occupies part of the promontory, and here amid the fall colours is one of the outdoor sculptures, which looks like a silver tree trunk, or a lightning bolt, depending on your point of view.
This view takes in the Ottawa River, the Alexandria Bridge, and Gatineau on the far shore.
Looking east gives us a view of the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge.
And turning back gives us a western view of the river.
And I finish with this view of Major's Hill Park, the Chateau Laurier, the Rideau Canal, and Parliament Hill.
