Ontario and Quebec 2017: Day 20 - Mont Cayamant and a Sunset


After the rain of yesterday we woke up to blue skies!

J went for a pre- breakfast swim!

Breakfast was the usual - cereal, bagels, toast - and coffee for the adults!



After breakfast, we took advantage of the sun and messed around by the lake!

An enormous dragonfly came to visit! It must have been 10cm long!



After a pizza and ice cream lunch, we headed to Mont Cayamant for yet another walk. F was not so impressed but the guide book said it was worth the trip for the views!



It was very green with a few mosquitos - they mainly seem to target me and J!



After a while, we commented that we didn't seem to be going very uphill as expected!



Whoops - we should have turned off a long time ago - but the trail we wanted had been signed posted as straight on!

We finished the loop we were on and ended up back at the carpark!

We set out again and this time managed to get on the right trail!



This us looking down but there were 500 steps up! And that was just part of the trek up! How my thighs laughed!



After a steady climb of about 2km ( they lied that it was only 1.5km - both J and I had our activity apps on ) we arrived at the look out tower - 24m high!



No option but to climb to the top after all that effort! What fabulous views awaited us!



Forests and lakes as far as the eye could see!



It really was worth the climb!

Going down was far easier and after a 6km walk we arrived back at the car!

On the way back, we stopped for a Mr Whippy type ice cream as a reward for all that effort!



Dinner was salmon burgers and corn on the cob! All on the BBQ!



We went back down to the lake to catch the last of the sun! This spider's web was on the pontoon! Thankfully for O, no spiders!



And at last, a sunset!



F and J on the rings in the water!



And the final one

I think we are all tired after the walk - not do long but those steps...

That was some workout for your legs! and then to go up the tower at the end of it. Although the views were quite spectacular, and a stunning sunset to end the day.

The thing is I read about the 500 steps but my brain had not translated that into actual effort!

The sunset was so very lovely!
