Leaving the East Coast

I always forget where I left off. We slept next to the Trans Canada (days ago, cell reception limits my posts). We were feeling pretty filthy so we took a dip in a river.

Fresh and clean (well cleanish) we continued to Edmunston that day.

After a short stop we continued on our way. We stopped for a bit of a break, we could see the light at the end of the tunnel!

We made it to the next province!

Our friend Charles had recommended Le Petite Temis, a bike trail that goes from Edmunston to Rivere du Loup. It was a pretty nice ride for the most part.

We did have to take one detour, sorry no pictures. We camped right by Notre Dame du Lac, right off the trail. This was our view while cooking dinner. Also this was our first night sleeping in the hammocks!

Best part of Quebec, to this point, they sell wine everywhere!

We continued on the next day and it started to rain. The trail was much less nice with rain, progress was much slower than on roads, although much more scenic. We stopped here for some beers.

The bartender gave us some great French lessons and she told us the story of how the town got its name. We continued on enjoying the scenery despite the rain.

We eventually made camp here.

The next day we made it to Rivere du Loup, a little behind schedule, but that’s OK. We met up with our friend Matthew, and decided to stay in town and have some beers tonight. Pete found this hostel.
