Today’s trip to the Rivière Rouge was changed because of expected high winds and thunderstorms around 2pm. Instead some of the club members headed out to Lafaivre and were surprised to find perfectly calm water on the Ottawa river. A quick trip across the river and then up the Salmon River to a peaceful resting spot. Winds picked up a bit on the way back making the Ottawa river a little choppy but nothing we couldn’t handle. Back at the cars by 2pm not a drop of rain touched us.
