Just back from a few days in my old home, Quebec Canada. My sister and I did a four-hour hike on Mt. Rigaud, west of Montreal. It wasn’t snowy yet but it was “gloves weather.”
We stopped here, on mossy rocks, for a snack. It was a bit of a climb, just enough to get your heart cranking.
This pond was frozen, but not hard enough to walk on.
We came across this cool boulder, a “glacial erratic” I assume.
The marshes were quiet, except for the ever-present chickadees, which are always welcome.
With the light beginning to fade, we found ourselves on a road with a long nasty climb and cars whizzing past. We ended up calling a taxi to get us back to where we’d parked the car, because we didn’t want to walk the road in the dark. Sometimes, you just gotta cut bait. Still an awesome hike, though.
What a great way to spend time. I love hiking through areas like that. That boulder is amazing. Very fascinating!
It was so round.I guess it rolled there eons ago.
Good call on the cab, dn. I’m so glad you included a pic of the boulder. You have to wonder where these things came from.
It was such a relief to climb into that car. It took about 10 minutes to drive back to where we had parked, so it was the smart thing to do.
