    if you grow up in this region, it is a way of life,
    if you arrive here as one not sports orientated
    then you have to learn to love the SNOW
    and -10C to -20C
    with Wind Chill factors added in to take it DOWN sometimes another -10C.

    when our youngest was in elementary School, at 10 or 11,
    with the school they went to Camp Fortune for their SNOW SKI-ing lessons

    The park seems huge (as the drive to get to the viewpoint seems to take longer than the drive down). The view is spectacular. It's such a calming place and the park also offers some great biking trails.

    Gatineau Park

    363 square kilometres to the northwest of Canada's Capital Region;

    you need car or bicycle to get around.

    "Finally free of the glacier's icy grip around 10,000 years ago, the Gatineau Hills began welcoming an ever-changing parade of humans 5,000 years later: First Nations peoples, explorers, fur traders, loggers, settlers, industrial developers, and finally, recreational users."

    currently, the foilage is Natures. inspiration

    The tepees are in Val des Monts, about 1 hour from Gatineau.

    If you are interested, write me for more information.

    This is a picture of us the next morning. We survived the night... actually this is where I got engaged!

    Winter time... what to do?
    Camping in a tepee. We did this last year in February and it was -40 celcius out. Not recommended when it's that cold out, but ok when only -10 or so. This is only for those that are serious about the outdoors and respect nature. The guy does not advertise to keep attraction down and preserve his land.

    Peaceful and very close to nature.

    This is how the older houses look like in Hull. They also have an upscale neighborhood in Hull. I just thought it is interesting to see such old houses.
