|Up up up!|
|Looking back at Mont Tremblant village|
|The weather started changing the higher I went|
|A selfie on the gondola|
|The higher I went, the windier and rainier it got ... |
the swaying of the gondola made me nervous
It was really cold at the top ... 6C/42F. It was rainy, windy and foggy too.
I went inside Le Grand Manitou Cafeteria for a while, hoping the weather would clear ... and it did a bit.
I headed towards the path to the observation tower.
|The view from the top of the tower ... it was really really cold |
and windy on the top level so I didn't stay there too long
I followed one of the hiking paths near the tower.
My intent had been to follow one of the hiking trails back down to the village. But they were wet and I was concerned they'd be too slippery. I followed a ski trail instead. I had no idea how long it would take me or how far it would be but I figured a ski trail ends at the bottom, right? So off I went.
|The observation tower I'd been on is waaaaay up there in the middle|
|Can you see it?|
|Tam-Tam is a kids zone|
|I cut into the Caps trail (considered strenuous) |
because I knew there was a waterfall on its path
|Back on a ski trail|
|I cut into the Ruisseaux trail because I knew it was close to the bottom ... |
it's considered easy so I wasn't concerned about slipping
|This bridge goes over the luge track|
|The end is in sight!|
|Down the hill to the village|
It was a great walk and I'm glad I could do it! It took me about two hours and according to my Garmin activity tracker, it was about 6.5km.
