Yamaska National Park near Granby today and then have a long but flat day back to Montreal the day after.
microbrewery/brewpub. Unfortunately, they were closed and at any rate it still would have been a little early for beer.
Pont Balthazar. Now I must say that I don't quite understand the North American obsession with covered bridges, but this one's location was stunningly beautiful, right over some rocky rapids.
When looking for that perfect lunch spot, I noticed what looked like a turtle in the water below. It was so big, however, that I first couldn't believe it. To a German, turtles are things that live in zoos or on the Galapagos Island, and even while living in the US I had only ever seen modestly sized ones. This one, in contrast was about 40 cm, lazily lying in the water between two rocks.
What more can you ask for for a lunch break -- covered bridge, lovely scenery, amazing wildlife.
