The Walk

Here are some final autumn shots from the Arboretum on the way down to Carleton University.


Near the university, the Hartwell Locks are part of the Canal. One of the locks had been drained as I came by, and a couple of men were below, setting up what would end up being a boat cradle so that the boat, moored above the locks in the final shot, will have a spot to be in dry dock for the winter.
