We made a side trip to Aiguebelle National Park which features a unique rift valley that has created two steep sided lakes. We did some nice hikes including one that went up a clift and then straight down via a vertical spiral staircase. Another hike crossed the rift on a hanging suspension bridge.
As we turned the bow of our ship south finally, we headed down highway 113, which was labled as " route isolee". It was very isolated with no fuel or even towns to speak of until we got closer to Gatineau, which is the Quebec side of Ottawa, the capital of Canada.
We tried to find a place in Ottowa to park and see the city, but it was so busy and the traffic so frantic that all we managed was a drive through downtown and a visit to the Canadian Aviation Museum.
