We started off carrying our snowshoes since wearing snowshoes is only energy efficient when you truly need them, otherwise it’s just a lot of effort. Shortly after this photo @toesalad put in his snowshoes.
Sometimes when you try something new, you find something you didn’t expect. That was the case this weekend when for Mother’s Day @reneetougas and I decided to drive along the corridor that follows the Sentier Nationale towards Quebec City to see what interesting things we might find.
We discovered Les Chutes du $5 ($5 Falls), at the intersection between a river (Riviere Bastican), a small town (Notre-Dame-de-Montauban), and the Sentier Nationale. Named for being the waterfall featured on the Canadian $5 bill in 1954... but apparently that claim to fame isn’t actually true (the Internet told us this afterwards). The real name is Fall of Nine because it was the ninth port settlers reached travelling up river. (The Internet told us this too).
Either way it was a beautiful discovery along the way.
