I thought I would share a small clip I made while out there... It mainly shows how quiet and pieceful the place was!

Absolutely stunning. Such beauty in the simple things.

Can you go along on our next trip as our photographer ?

Looks like good time had by all.
So then you saw the Rupert River in all its glory. That must have been spectacular.
Still very cool.

Yes a GOOD TIME was had by all.

Thanks jorrie. This site is such a great resource for planning trips as well as seeing places there is no chance to ever see in person. Happy to share.

Thanks. We went on the short tour which was the dam and lake. The full tour also goes through the power generation plant. Just did not have enough time for it all.

We will be in western Canada this year. Hope to return to Quebec again soon. I love it.

I'm kicking around a trip up there when the skeeterz die down. Have not yet decided on which route though. If I can get the time the Trans Tiaga /Trans Lab might ber in the cards also.

Did you guys get bitten up on your trip?

Not on this trip. We were there in August and the bugs were almost non existent. We went to Labrador City in July the year before and got bitten much more. Might have been black flies. The welts on the back of my neck didn't go down for weeks.

You guys went in mid Aug. What were some of the day/nighttime high/low temps. I want to miss the bugs and hot weather, but not so late as to risk freezing temps at night. Since I'm able to preplan way ahead of time I may as well go the best time possible.

High temps ranged from 90's when we left and returned to PA to mid 50's in the north.

Lows were upper 60's in the south to upper 30's to low 40's in the north.

I wouldn't leave now. Sunday's high is -8 F.
