We proceeded on is a term that repeatedly shows itself in the journals of the Lewis and Clark expedition. I had no choice but to proceed on as I headed for the end of my journey on Dow's Lake.
The skateway loop going up around the lake is divided by a swath of snow, occasionally topped with Christmas trees picked up for use at Winterlude.
A final view of Dunton Tower back at Carleton University.
Here is a first good view of H.M.C.S. Carleton, a Navy reserve station on the northwest side of the lake. The main building was completely rebuilt several years ago.
And a look back to the southeast from where I was at this point. This walk along the Rideau Canal ends tomorrow.
Beautiful photos! You have the impression that the sky is one with the earth ...ReplyDelete
Still a white landscape ! I am so glad that it's getting green here !ReplyDelete
I have been thinking of re-reading Lew and Clark. You may have given me the stimulus!ReplyDelete
It looks like a winter wonderland, with the ice and the skaters. Our snow and ice have melted, after a few days in the 60-70's. Take care, enjoy your weekend!
Everything looks so deserted and forlorn.ReplyDelete
...Dow's Lake looked a lot different when I saw it.ReplyDelete
@Ella: thank you.ReplyDelete
@Gattina: it will still be awhile.
@Eileen: we had a cold night.
@Magiceye: winter here can be like that.
@Tom: quite different.
The skaters have a lot of space for themselves. Here the ice would be packed with people.ReplyDelete
Great snowscapes on the river. And I continue to enjoy your header shot.ReplyDelete
I didn't know that part of the skating loop was like a divided highway.ReplyDelete
