A Short Trip to Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada

      Lee and I decided that we had to get away for a few days, so we left on a Friday and drove up here (a distance of almost 500 miles). En route, we traveled through Western Massachusetts and upstate New York. Because its autumn, the scenery was spectacular in the Berkshires and in Adirondack State Park. We hit some traffic going through Montreal, but, otherwise the trip was fairly uneventful. We arrived just before 5PM and had a bit of light left to take a walk through the lovely and colorful pedestrian village, just below the looming and large mountain, Mont Tremblant.
      The little village is delightful to stroll. At one end is Traveler’s Square, with the distinctive Clock Tower, and, at the opposite end is St Bernard Square, at the base of several gondolas which we hope to try out today. In between are myriad shops and restaurants which Lee is dying to explore in depth today. We had dinner at La Forge Cafe, right on Place Saint-Bernard, and discovered something very important about this place — it is VERY EXPENSIVE!  The dinners were all about $50.00 and a beer was $9.25!
      More tomorrow, after we have had some time to get our bearings and discover what the region has to offer. Hopefully, I will also be able to upload the few pictures I took yesterday.
