Amongst the Ruins

During the first COVID lockdown I found comfort in going for long hikes. One of these trips took me to the Carbide Willson Ruins, located in Gatineau Park, Quebec. It was almost 8 km one way, but man was it worth it.

The ruins are the last remaining traces of a fertilizer plant constructed by little-known inventor Thomas Leopold Willson. The complex originally included three buildings: an acid condensation tower, a dam and a generating station.
