Mont St-Hilaire...lovely trails!

"Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift."
Albert Einstein 

What a wonderful morning on the mountain. My BIL and I spent the morning climbing Mont St-Hilaire...great cross-training and just so beautiful. Here, let me show you...
Beautiful day...

By the lake

Getting technical.

It's the climb...

Top of the world"ish" :)

If there was no smog, you could see the Olympic Stadium in Montreal off in the distance.

You can't really tell, but there are a bunch of students on the other "peak".

Bird sanctuary on the way down.

A wonderful morning!
Thanks to my BIL for joining me and taking all these great pics.

Cheers!

Wow!!! Quelle belle balade!!!! Je t'envie!!!! Je suis une maniaque de montagnes, mais j'ai décidé de me mettre au régime sec pour l'été car ma dernière montagne (Mont Adams NH, une semaine avant mon demi-marathon de l'an passé)m'avait occasionné ma m#%$&*/ fasciite plantaire. Donc, pas de montagne avant le marathon,mais j'aurais telllllement aimé et c'est vrai que c'est un Xtrain excellent! Tes photos sont magnifiques!!
