Mont Megantic September 2008
Welcome to altitudeland
Chapel on the summit of Mont St-Joseph - and blue sky!
It was gloriously sunny and warm for our Mont Megantic hike this year. Third time lucky!
We hiked to the Andromeda hut and then up the Ruisseau Fortier Trail on the back of Mont Megantic. That's the west side of the mountain. This is the trail I took last winter on snowshoes.
At the top of the Ruisseau Fortier trail.
You can compare this location with a picture from last winter snowshoe hike.
This is the same location six months earlier.
Our conclusion is that snowshoeing is much easier than hiking.
We stayed in a Teepee (Tipi), This was because of our history of rain here. We thought we'd try something different, and hopefully better this year.
Everything cleaned up after our Teepee camping experience.
This teepee slept three. Except that there were four of us. It was still an excellent way to camp out of the rain, the fireplace worked great. When we weren't sleeping it was no problem to hold the four of us.
