Recently, I discovered a car in the middle of Gatineau Park! The closest road was about a kilometre away.

It got me wondering about the history of the micro area I was travelling through. My head filled with questions!:
“How long has the car been there?”
“Why is the car in the middle of a forest?”
“Where are the people who owned the car?”
“Why did the people leave the car here?”
“How did people get the car here?
The car is in the middle of Gatineau Park, a huge place (361 square kilometres or 139 square miles) just north of Ottawa and Gatineau in Canada. What happened to the missing parts of the car?
