Imagine you’re on the shores of the Ottawa River. You turn your face up to the warming rays of the sun and take a cleansing breath; the air is crisp, fresh, sweet. An American Goldfinch sings; not to be outdone, the Cardinal, Robin, and Blue Jay vie for attention. Flaps of wings alert you to the Great Blue Heron leaving its perch. Gentle waves lap around the rocky shore, and a splash confirms that the fish are restless.
You’re in beautiful Pontiac County, so untouched by big city development that it’s easy to imagine our first great explorer, Samuel de Champlain, paddling his canoe along this very shore, his senses engaged by the same smells, sounds and views that we’re enjoying 400 years later.
Yet, time hasn’t stood still. Once only accessible by river, today the Pontiac greets you from all cardinal points, and whether by car, by boat, or by bicycle, we’re proud to invite you to explore our inner beauty.
