Great pics and thanks for taking me back in time!!!! Spent 12 days with Université De Montréal (geography) for a seminar while l was a student back in 92 (ish) . Most of it was in Mont St-Pierre (paragliding spot) and Forillion. Lots of BBB (Beer Bonfire Bunnies) on the shore every night ... Life was good. Time to go back for a long bike week-end with either the wife or one of the daughters...

I know! I saw the sign but it wasn't in my schedule. I'd love to get back there though.

The leaves should just be starting to change by then I would guess. I suppose if I wanted to go down a side road I could have found something. I'm a little leery of ninja camping sometimes. I just wasn't feeling it much this trip.

Yep, I went right as well. I didn't see any beaver dam but it did get wet and the puddles were muddy and deep.

Woke up to an overcast day but at least it wasn't raining. Within 20 minutes of leaving Freddy, I saw 3 or 4 camp grounds, all open to tenting.
I also saw a big potato,


I rode along the 105 and it was gorgeous. Too bad it wasn't a little bit brighter but it was still nice,






It's starting...


Another abandoned house along the way,




I love the helmet protecting the bulb,


Another old house or cottage. This one was very cool,






LOL. Like Satan is into tagging.




After getting all screwed up and heading in the wrong direction I managed to find home,


Mappage.


I wanted to post a few additional pix from previous trips to give an idea as what you can expect to see.
You just have to get off the beaten path sometimes.




Yes, that's a fox,












Thanks for coming along.

First let me say your picture quality is second to none.. You have a great eye, and the resolution and colors are incredible.... Top notch

Secondly I've ridden the gaspe peninsula twice now and you have shown me so many things I missed... I live out east (southeast mass), so this is more less my back yard, and a quick day and a half trip to the area. I just returned yesterday from 12 days in PEI,NB, NS, and CB, but I was two up so my off road legs were very limited (had to keep mama happy). I'll have to go back on the other bike and explore more in the Gaspe... The Lauretian Mountains on the north shore are packed with incredible trails and roads....

Thank you for allowing me to hitch hike on your journey. It was so worth the time
