May 29, 2018 - Chute a Blondeau to Pembroke

I started off on a secondary highway which followed a scenic route along the Ottawa River. Conveniently, it turned into a freeway to get through the city of Ottawa where I was tempted to stop but I spent a week here last year so I kept going. On the western outskirts of Ottawa, I found the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum, which was fascinating.

The trees are nice, they are getting more red with more maples in the area , but the weather is not conducive to taking pictures of it. We are still on a 2 lane highway that goes through lots of small towns; most of them seem to have a Tim Horton's! We overnight in Pembroke that is next to Petawawa, the home of one of the large military bases in...
