I’m really enjoying Cee’s photo challenges, and this one’s no exception. The Which Way photo challenge is to “[capture] the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.”
This week’s photo is of Chambly Canal – one of the connections between Lake Champlain in Vermont and the St. Lawrence River (and onward to either the Great Lakes or the Atlantic Ocean). We are looking south at this point toward Vermont. I’ve biked along the towpath for this one twice, once in 2011 when riding from Toronto to Quebec City and again, when I took this photo. On that trip, Daegan and I took the train to Montreal then biked down to Vermont via upstate New York, across the state, back up in to Quebec and across to Montreal over the course of about a week. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on this particular day though just as we entered the Montreal area a wall of humidity hit us followed by a major thunderstorm whose wind blew us in to town but mercifully waited until we were in our Airbnb before the downpour started.
The story of that trip is spread across nine entries. On it we got misdirected by Google (yet again – you’d think we’d learn!), were surprised by dinosaurs, hailed a ferry by flag, and visited a library that was in two countries. The entries are all linked from here. Have a look and take a long bike tour from your desk.
