A short image gallery of a hike in my own backyard - Gatineau Park just north of Ottawa. The image gallery is of one of the nicer trails, called the "wolf trail". It is often done as a loop, and provides pretty walking through mixed hilly woodlands, past marshes and beaver ponds, and past several scenic lookouts. In reality, I was joining Peter K and Caroline in a reconnaisance hike for a future work outing of Peter's - but that was a good excuse to get out, enjoy some fresh air, and get some exercise.
