It's been a long while since I last featured Hog's Back Falls on the blog. Here at Mooney's Bay, the Rideau River and Rideau Canal separate for the last time as the two waterways head through the city on their way to the Ottawa River. This is the Hog's Back Locks on the Canal.
Beyond is the river it comes from- the Rideau River widens here into Mooney's Bay, and its course continues over to the left.
Lots of ducks and geese were lingering here late on the day I took these shots, a late September afternoon. In one case, a duck was dashing across the path and keeping an eye on me.
The river spills out over what's usually called Hog's Back Falls, and occasionally Prince of Wales Falls. It's a tumble of rapids and waterfalls spilling through a small canyon, with part of the water held in check by hydro works. I have more from here over the next two days.
