Tripping....


We had a wonderful time during our four days away in Quebec last week.  The fall colours were spectacular, despite the dull and rainy weather we experienced.  The above pictures show a view of the mountain (Tremblant) and the road leading down to the condo where we were staying.

Below are a couple of pictures I took right off our balcony and perhaps show the colours the best. 



Because of the dreary weather we weren't really able to do much in the way of exploring outdoors.  There are tons of walking/biking trails in the area and also places to rent canoes and kayaks.  There's a gondola that goes to the top of the mountain but the day we had thought of doing that the mountain was pretty much socked in with clouds.  I think both Jack and I were relieved because neither one of us is very brave when it comes to heights!

We had a great time but are glad to be home and getting back into the routine of things.

Lovely pics of the fall colours! I'm not a fan of heights, but did go up the gondola at Lake Louise several years ago. It was cold, but the views were marvelous. Glad you had a nice time.

I always like the way fall colours glow against a grey ground

Thanks so much for the foliage pix. Around here the wet and cold weather has put a damper on fall color, so it's nice to see some via your blog.

Glad you're back!
