On our last day at the cottage, we had to drive into the nearest village (nearest with any decent stores at least) to purchase a new lock for the storage shed. Somewhere along the line, I lost the old one — probably dropped it in the snow to be uncovered in spring.
On the drive into town, the clouds were gray, the road somewhat snow overed and rutty, and there were occasional little squalls (snow blowing across the road in localized spots). I kept thinking that readers might like to see a few clips of the route, so on the way home, I dug the camera out for Sue to shoot some clips. Of course, the skies were sunnier and the squalls less frequent by then, but I still put together a little montage of less than four minutes.
We begin in Apsley, follow 620 to Glen Alda and turn onto the road to the cottage. I have added a few labels to the clips to identify a few things as we pass by. The trip takes ~20 minutes in summer but more like ~30 minutes when the road is in this condition. The video lasts for 3:42.
It's not rivetting, but I thought some of you might like to see a bit of the geography of the Canadian Shield (cottage country) in winter conditions.
The video is shaky. Youtube has a procedure that will reduce the shake, but I opted to leave it in because that's the way this bumpy drive was.
