In The Middle Of Nowhere

During our summer tour of the Eastern Townships, we made a stop at a farm that grew sunflowers in the hopes of seeing fields of beautiful, radiant sunflowers.

But, it was not to be.  We were too late.  The sunflowers had long since wilted or had just plain dried up.  However, there was plenty of beautiful scenery to be seen and photographed.

I kid you not, it was so quiet at this farm, that you could hear the leaves rustle in the light breeze that was going over the fields.  The silence was only broken by the occasional car going by.

The Notch

If you ever get a chance to drive through the Notch, do it!  But beware, the Notch is closed from mid-October to mid-May and it is closed to motorcoaches, motorhomes and commercial vehicles year round.

What makes it worthwhile?  Well, the scenery for starters.  Furthermore, it’s simply a cool experience, threading your car in between Mount Mansfield and Spruce peak, as well as the Sterling Range.

There are some very steep inclines and at some points along the route, you have to think skinny because only one car can pass at a time.

At various spots along the route, you can park your car on the side of the road or in designated parking areas in order to take in the scenery.

Freedom

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.  You trade in your reality for a role.  You trade in your sense for an act.  You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.  There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level.  It’s got to happen inside first.”

– Jim Morrison (no relation)

Coaticook Gorge

Scenes from Coaticook Gorge, Quebec.  If you go, don’t forget to make a stop at the ice cream factory, which is a few minutes away from the gorge.
