After my time in New Edinburgh, I stopped at Rideau Falls, where the Rideau River tumbles into the Ottawa River. The park here offers great views of the falls, and both sides of the Ottawa River. There are two branches of the falls here, with Green Island between them; this first post features the east branch. And if you want to see these falls in action, check out this video I took that day.
The park around the falls features several monuments, most of them military in nature. This one on Green Island commemorates Allied pilots killed on training missions in Canada through the Second World War. And even though this was Labour Day, as you can see in the concluding shot especially, a couple of the trees were starting to turn colours. I'm planning on coming back to the area on Monday- odds are those trees will have lost their leaves by now, while the rest will be turning. I have more from here tomorrow.
