One of my favorite things to do is walk in nature. We are so fortunate to have such beautiful trails just outside ours doors here in Ottawa. Why walk on a treadmill with these gems available? The City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission do a great job maintaining these trails. This winter I fed chickadees right out of hand. When things are stressful nature is an awesome cure.
I hope you make it a priority to take the time to explore them. I've made it my goal to hike everyone in the area and have made a great start this winter. Also if you want a Sunday drive check out Blakeney Rapids Trail just outside Almonte in Mississippi Mills. In Almonte turn right on Martin St., at the stop lights and drive to Blakeney, turn left and wind down the hill to the one lane bridge that crosses the rapids. There is parking on the far side of the bridge. Well worth the drive.
