OTTAWA VALLEY RAMBLES -episode 5 - The Lower Portage

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

The Ottawa River's Three Portages of the Chaudière are its most famous but their locations remain somewhat cloaked in obscurity. In this episode, Andrew and Rick take us to the Lower Portage (Le portage-du-bas), which take us past the great Kettle Falls or Akikojiwan, as they were known for hundreds of years.

Bonjour Rick,

Fascinant et très instructif. Petite question: avez- vous visionné la vidéo de Jean-Luc Pilon, ancien conservateur en archéologie au musée canadien de l‘Histoire? Il y mentionne que l’ancien portage se trouvait devant le musée. Qu pensez-vous de cette hypothèse?

Yet another excellent Ramble. I have lived the majority of my life in this area and am learning much new history. This is excellent. I am looking forward to future episodes.
