I drove to Merrickville this afternoon to see what fall along the Rideau River looked like. Of course it wasn't a direct drive there, since there was beautiful fall foliage along the way also, needing to be captured before it lost its richness. Sasha and I looked down on the river from the bridge, and it bore little resemblance to the river I posted back in early spring. We walked along the canal till we found a path through the undergrowth that led to the river.
Where in the spring we would have been swept away, there were now bare rocky ledges with only a small stream cascading over them. Fall seemed to be coming more slowly along the river than further away from it where most trees had already turned a fiery red/orange and had lost a lot of foliage. Here there were still a lot of green leaves, so I shall have to make a return visit soon.
