Winter has arrived!

Two Sundays ago, Constant, my girlfriend Catherine and myself got together at the Camp Air-Eau-Bois. While Constant was going to his workplace, Catherine and I were going to my favorite place in the world to relax a bit. We were all met with splendid beauty: it was the first snowfall of the year.

It was quite the slippery car ride to get there because of the snow and ice build. We made it safely and without any trouble but just couldn’t make it up the last steep hill before camp. We parked the car in a parking space not too far from the road that leads to camp. After a walk in the howling wind and the blowing snow, we took a peak at the lake which is right next to the base. It was so dark and mysterious that you couldn’t even tell at what level the water was nor where were the waves. It was the first time I ever saw the lake like that. We then made our way to our final destination for the night and Constant arrived shortly after we did. We had fun cooking our meal and making pop corn on the fire because there was no electricity (a tree fell on the power lines).

After a good night’s sleep and a quick breakfast, we went out to a nice little lookout, the PPV. It’s one of the three amazing lookouts that you can go hike to from the base camp. Here are a few pictures of our view:

After the hike, we had another nice supper and Catherine and I were off to the city again. Overall, it was a great little vacation!
