Day 51: Aug 22 Quebec

From the journal: “Drove out of Quebec City and out of the clouds. Turned into a nice day. Drove along Route 40 until we reached Louisville and turned north on the 348. A lot of farmland, corn and something else that looked like potatoes, but I don’t believe they were. A lot of the farm houses still had antennas – no satellite dishes. Rolling hills. Larger coniferous trees here – 40-50’ high. As we got further north there were more lakes and more campgrounds than I thought there would be. 150km between gas stations. St. Come was a nice little resort town with a beautiful lake. 5 different ski hills in the area. Hope they are good skiers here or you’d learn fast. Stayed at Walmart in Val D’or (City of Gold). Looks to be a mining town.”

The residents of Val-d’Or, “Valley of Gold”, don’t just mine gold anymore. Copper, zinc, and lead have become just as important.
