Only 20 minutes from Quebec City, the Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier earned its nickname, “Québec City's Great Outdoors,” with its four-season playground. Winter play is on the area's two ski resorts, snow slides, and its new snowshoeing and Nordic skiing trails. Summertime finds travelers hanging at the lakes. Feeling adventurous? Spend the night in a yurt, primitive campsite or cottage in the woods.

We visited the MosaïCanada 150 exhibition, and it was just amazing... over 4 million individual plants and flowers arranged in a variety of living "sculptures", just amazing. Unfortunately, the exhibit is finished now, but I expect the sculptures will show up in other places later,...More
