Into the Darkness…

The tour will be in French at 2pm.

Our ghost adventure begins.  It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon this June.  Perfect day to go into a cold dark cave.

We head to

Lafleche Caves.

I am with my son Matt.  His first drive down Highway 366 to the Caves.  He gets to share the Buddhist temple, Lac MacGregor, the winds, hills, turns and curves before we hit the 307 south to the park.

Runnin’ with the Devil

The park is deep in the woods and mountains.  All there is a couple of chalets and the parking lot.

You can see the zip lines everywhere. They even run over the water.  The entrance to the caves.  The nature trails.  The setting is breathtaking. Mother nature at her finest.  Humans interacting with and appreciating the ancient rocks and trees.

Magic in those Monts

Over the Hills and Far Away

The drive from Val-des-Monts to Wakefield is almost as nice as my destination itself.  Today was a perfect sunny day to take a nice drive through the back mountains of Quebec.  One of my favourite country drives.

I take the 366 north towards Lac St. Pierre.  The road is winding and curving passing along Lac MacGregor. Views of this huge lake are amazing and I see a hawk fly overhead.  At one point on the highway, you past a Buddhist temple on a cliff facing the lake.  I saw a white peacock in front last summer.  Now they are erecting some huge monuments.  The investigator in me smells a story there.

The drive turns south at the 307 towards Cantley.  The road is quick and dark.  Deep in cottage country.  Half way I pass Lafleche Caves...
