A few posts back, Jessie wrote about Mount Royal (a small mountain located on the island of Montreal). And just outside of Montreal there are even more mountains to choose from! Since the weather in Montreal is getting warmer and warmer I have been lucky enough to get out of Montreal on weekends and get back to nature.
A couple weeks ago some friends and I went to an area outside of Montreal called the Eastern Townships. This is a mountainous region in Quebec. We went to a little town called Mont Orford and enjoyed all the green trees around us and the amazing views on the hike. When we started the hike we were very warm and it was sunny. But when we got to the top, the weather changed and suddenly we needed to wear jackets and long-sleeved shirts. It was so cold! We had goosebumps (little bumps on our skin we get when we feel cold). The weather can change fast here, especially in the spring.
Last weekend we went to the Laurentians, a very popular place for tourists that is north of Montreal. It was also so green and beautiful. There are many cute little shops along the way there. There are many antique (old, valuable items) shops and many little places to eat too.
This time there were a lot of bugs (insects)! My friends and I all got bitten a lot. We were bitten by mosquitoes and black flies. These are two kind of insects that bite people and leave them feeling so itchy! It was worth it though, because the weather was so warm and the country was beautiful!
I have to go scratch my mosquito bites now!
