The astronomical observatory on the Mount Megantic – 360 degree interactive panorama

Not Montreal I know, but this is a only a few hours drive from here and a nice place to go hiking with snowshoes. There are some good trails up to the observatory or if you just can’t overcome lazyness, take the shuttle at the park’s entrance then go all the way down by walking.

Paddling on the Ottawa River – panoramic photo


Considered by many as one of the best places for kayaking, the Ottawa River have been hosting different international competitions, e.g., the 2007 World Kayak Championship.

None of this took place here on Bate Island at Canada’s capital, but down the river on its way to Quebec, near the Pontiac region. Yet, this is a great place for learning and training!

Cap Saint-Jacques Nature Park, Maison de la Pointe

At the park Cap Saint-Jacques many beautiful places can be found, each one with its own charm like this one, in front of de la Pointe house where we can just seat and contemplate the sunset over Deux-Montagnes frozen Lake.

Featuring 26 kilometers of hiking trails and over 30 kilometers of trails for cross country skiing, the park also offers a variety of options for the visitors, like an organic farm, which raises animals and grows organic produce, environmental science activities and an authentic sugar shack, or cabane à sucre in French, where we can watch the production of maple syrup and savour a delicious tire d’érable, which is a sort of lollipop made from boiling maple syrup poured into fresh snow and then wrapped around a stick or a spoon!

At the Parc du Mont-Tremblant, the belvedere located on the top of the mountain gives us an impressive 360 degree panoramic view of the whole region and the big storm advancing over the Tremblant Lake.

Later that saturday (02/aug.) the storm killed a mother and her 9-years-old son in Témiscouata region, eastern Quebec. Their car plunged into a lake and was swept away when a section of the road was washed-out by flash floods.
