Took a drive to Gatineau/ Ottawa

Took a drive today through Gatineau and headed over to Ottawa. Just a few shots I took on the way back. There is a lot of great history in the small towns around here, mainly relating to forestry and logging.
Saw this from the highway heading home on 148, had to stop and take a shot. Lettering is awesome.
This is Nicole's part of the country.....

Had to snag a pic of this skidder...

Small mural in Quyon, Qc. This little town was basically desolate. They have a ferry that run across the Ottawa River to Ottawa. It was $7.50 to take.

Who knew Elvis lived in Quyon. Just awesome. I missed getting a picture of this fry stand down the street which has been there for over 40 years. I will surley be visiting McCanns when they re-open.

This 60-61 Apache looked like it needs just a bit of work......
Love this big ass cow catcher leaning against the sign post. Thinking it would make a great addition to the sentra. I do need a new bump.... Oh yeah Santa bring me a 372xp....

Wonder if it runs?

This picture was taken while touring the sites with my lovely mother and father last weekend. Part of the old Davidson's Mill. This conveyor log deck looks like its been out of commission for a while.

During the days of log drives, logs started at Coulonge at Lac Grand and were driven to the Ottawa River at Davidson, Quebec, it was about 225km and took at about 7-8 days to get them to the mill. Hopefully in the next week or so, ill get a few more shots of the Davidson Mill. It has sadly seen better days...
