Wow wow wow!

I could have spent all day at stop 1! I was there in the fall (September) and all the leaves were changing colours, really great hike (but you could drive up the hill if you didn't want to hike). Big lookout tower near the entrance too. A surprise waterfall area. Cute little Quebec towns with good food and little shops. You probably want to speak some French on this trip because some servers only spoke French (maybe it was just the place we chose) - but also for the road signs (all in French!) I think this would be a good trip to do if you're going from Ottawa to Montreal too, something to make the drive more fun.
