One of my favorite areas in Quebec is Mont-Tremblant national park. I could not miss an opportunity to go there. And this time I was lucky to see something that I have never seen in my life before!

I think that true understanding comes from seeing small towns, farms, gas stations, countryside.. Seeing a country from the road.
